The tiny Fishtank Performance Studio (1715 Wyandotte) lends itself to one-actor shows, of which Mask of the Broken Heart is the latest. But the room might feel a little more crowded this time because Stephanie Roberts plays 13 characters. Roberts also wrote the film-noir-style script, set in Kansas City. Directing is Fishtank founder Heidi Van, whom The Pitch dubbed a creative Mastermind earlier this year. Mask of the Broken Heart opens at 8 p.m. with additional performances at 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Admission is a suggested donation of $5 to $15. See fishtanktheater.com.— Crystal K. Wiebe
