Although you may have seen the work of award-winning playwright William Missouri Downs (in the ’90s he wrote for My Two Dads and Fresh Prince of Bel Air), you’ve probably never had a chance to catch it live–or give him constructive feedback. But when the Paragon Theater company opens its 2009 series of play readings with Downs’ The Polish Book of Karma–a comedy about a liberal, godless Harvard girl who returns to her devout Polish Catholic family the day the Pope arrives in town–you’ll have a chance to do both. Mon, Mar. 9, 7 p.m., Crossroads Theater, 2590 Washington St. 303-832-0929, Free, official website
