Tonight, playwright alum MJ Halberstadt opens Hardly Soft as part of the Museum of Fine Arts’ MFA Late Nites. In the play—which MJ describes as “100% an experiment”—the Placid Purlers knitting group tries to recruit new members and provide brief mini-lessons, but find that their varied strategies for achieving calmness often collide. Audience members encounter characters knitting in the art galleries and are instructed to listen to their conversations and, in some cases, participate. Congratulations!  Tickets and additional details
