DENMARK — The Denmark Arts Center will present an evening of one-act plays, directed in house. First up: “Impromptu,” a Pirandellian take of life on the stage. What happens when your actors don’t show up to their first call? Does the show go on? Next, “The Problem,” an efficient little two-hander with a husband, a wife, and a problem of a familial bend. The event is BYOB and cabaret style. Call the arts center at 207-452-2412 or visit for more information.
