21 Public performance, Past Present, The ArtsCenter, 300-G E. Main St., Carrboro (8 pm). Buy tickets!

Transactors Improv winds up its ArtsCenter season with Past Present, a show about how childhood and adulthood are inextricably linked. The two-act performance is improvised from audience suggestions.

“Who we were as kids largely determines who we are as adults,” says director Greg Hohn. “Our childhoods presage our social, professional, and family lives as we move with or react against the forces that shaped us.

“Of course, in typically weird Transactors fashion, we will start with adult characters and then try to figure out who they must have been as children.”

The cast for Past Present includes Anoo Tree Brod, Greg Hohn, Juliet Kaplan, Bart Hubbard, Steve Scott, Steven Warnock, and Jane Allen Wilson. Jenn Evans handles lights and sound.
