No Boundaries. The Wilde Meyer Gallery's November art show isn't constrained to one single theme—in fact, with a title like "no boundaries," it's not constrained in any way at all. This eclectic show is all about letting artists' imaginations run wild, whether they're depicting Tucson landscapes, abstract wildlife or patched-together people. Rudie van Brussel, Peggy McGivern, Maura Allen and Sarah Webber are among the exhibiting artists. The opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1 will have traditional Mexican Day of the Dead refreshments. The only boundary the exhibit does have is time—it's only up for the month of November! Wilde Meyer Gallery, 2870 E. Skyline Drive, suite 170. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursdays and 1 to 4 p.m. on Sundays. Free. Details Here.

 especially worth visiting when admission is free, and when there's all sorts of Dia de los Muertos activities going on. On this month's agenda: performances by Backup Brass Band, a procession by the All Souls Procession founder, Susan K Johnson, and the Cholla High Magnet High School Mariachi band. You can also make some of your own art and poetry activities, check out the altars and art installations created by local students (plus one by the Consulate of Mexico), pick up some snacks from Marwa Alfandi Syrian Sweets and get some Dia de Los Muertos-inspired hair and makeup by Belle Starr Salon. 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1. Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block, 140 N. Main Ave. Free. Details Here.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. If you haven't read this award-winning novel, you're going to want to. But with this showing of the play coming to town, directed by Cynthia Meier and with music direction and original composition by Jake Sorgen, you might want to wait until after you've seen the show live. The story follows 15-year-old Christopher, an autistic savant, who launches an investigation when he finds his neighbor's murdered dog and ends up opening up a whole world full of secrets. It's heartbreaking and fascinating and gripping on the page, and is bound to be even more so on the stage. 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Thursday, Nov. 1 through Sunday, Nov. 18. The Rogue Theatre at the Historic Y, 300 E. University Blvd. $28 for preview shows on Thursday, Nov. 1, and Friday, Nov. 2. $38 all other shows. Details Here.

Odyssey Storytelling Presents: Dealbreakers
. What are some dealbreakers for you? Do you not date guys who wear turtlenecks? Would you not take a job if it required you to come in every morning at 5 a.m.? Would you never move into a house without a microwave? This month, Ethel Lee-Miller has curated a selection of six storytellers who will be telling stories about dealbreakers in several lives. There's an anthropology professor, a jigsaw puzzle enthusiast, three authors and a geologist, which goes to show you that, truly, everyone has their dealbreakers. 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1. The Sea of Glass Center for the Arts, 330 E. Seventh St. $10 GA, $7 students. Details Here.
