The Big Game: Today of course is the day for the biggest game on the planet, the 3 p.m. match-up (Palm Coast time) between Nigeria and Ivory Coast in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations, in one of those stadiums China’s been building all over Africa. Nigeria is favored, having accumulated a better record than Ivory Coast in the previous rounds, including a 1-0 victory over Ivory Coast in the group stage, while allowing only two goals the entire tournament. Nigeria defeated South Africa in a penalty shootout in the semifinal. Ivory Coast had a much rougher road to the final, including two losses, the other a 4-0 loss to Equatorial Guinea. The Elephants defeated Congo 1-0 in the semi. But they’re playing in their own home turf. BeIN Sport is carrying the match live at 3 p.m.

Starting March 15: Caryl Churchill's 'Vinegar Tom,' at City Repertory Theatre, 160 Cypress Point Parkway (City Marketplace, Suite B207), Palm Coast, 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, 3 p.m. on Sunday. $15-$30. Book tickets here. From Director John Sbordone's program notes: Caryl Churchill’s "Vinegar Tom," written in collaboration with the Monstrous Regiment Theatre Company, uses the hunt for witches in the 17th century, as stool to investigate the subjugation of women in a male dominated society. The lessons of the past, though more blatant than the present, are reflected in many aspects of our own society. Churchill, a leading feminist writer in Britain for over 50 years, explores the free spirited Alice, the subservient Susan, the caged in Betty, the destitute Joan and the ever helpful Ellen in the context of their repressive environment. She uses modern techniques such as the episodic scene to convey the pervasiveness of the subjugation without absorbing the audience in emotional crisis. She asks us to observe the behaviors without getting lost in their melodrama. One technique establishes these goals graphically. The songs are intended to covey a contemporary commentary on the behavior of the past. CRT is proud to present this daring exploration and thankful to Benjamin Beck for composing the compelling music to accompany our efforts.
