Lord of the Flies is my personal favorite of the classics on high school required reading lists — all respect due to 1984 and The Odyssey — and it remains pretty ripe for adaptation. William Golding’s boys-gone-wild novel has been turned into a new play opening tonight at WaterTower Theatre. Elsewhere, your Dallas Stars take on the hated Calgary Flames, and Texas authors read out loud at the DMA.

WaterTower’s Lord of the Flies runs through Feb. 14.

Stars games are a blast. I know less than nothing about hockey, and I’ve been to two games this season. Nosebleed tickets are cheap, the Stars are good, and the beer is cold. It is an absolute thrill to watch men careen around an icy surface at high speeds, slapping pucks and occasionally fighting. I’m sure I’ll figure out the rest of the game eventually. The Calgary Flames visit the American Airlines Center tonight.

Texas-based authors Octavio Solis, Owen Egerton, Chris Hury, and G.W. Bailey will read from their work tonight at the DMA.
