Alexandra, who has been feeling all of her 79 years, sits in her Brooklyn brownstone surrounded by bottles filled with flammable liquid. She keeps a Zippo lighter ever at the ready.  No one, but no one, is going to get her out of her home. Yes, she knows that she is, well -- "Dwindling. That's the word I settled on," she says. So all she wants is to finish out her days with "a little touch of grace. " As portrayed by venerable actress Estelle Parsons in Eric Coble's funny-bittersweet new play "The Velocity of Autumn" at Arena Stage, Alexandra is a startling force -- wry, wise, wistful, obsessive, compulsive, angry, a little spiteful.

"Night Catches Us," Tanya Hamilton's complex treatment of the Black Panther legacy, is perfect viewing for Black History Month. Just released on a Magnolia DVD, it is an emotion-charged memory play and a film noir in more ways than one. It contains one human time bomb — a trigger-happy street kid with delusions of political glory — and several characters carrying scars from a fatal police-Panther showdown. It's a personal work of art, not a docudrama. It's a stirring debut for Hamilton as a keen, intuitive writer-director.
