Music and Theater Arts lecturer Kim Mancuso will direct the Pilgrim Theater Company's production of "N (Bonaparte)," a play by fellow lecturer Laura Harrington, at the Plaza Theatre, located in the Boston Center for the Arts (539 Tremont St., Boston), through Saturday, Oct. 8. The phantasmagorical tragicomedy centers on Napoleon's final days in exile on St. Helena. He confronts his legacy and crafts his future legend while guarded by 2,000 British soldiers, surrounded by sycophants, toadies and an unforgiving sea, and plagued by rats. Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m., Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $22; $16 for students, seniors and groups of more than 10; student rush $10. Full-price advance tickets are available by calling (617) 933-8600 or visiting www.BostonTheatreScene.com.
