The Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse returns this weekend with another limited theatrical performance, this time based on the poetry of Sharon Olds.

In her book Stag’s Leap, published in 2012, Ms. Olds chronicled the end of her marriage by divorce, which occurred in 1997. It took her 15 years to approach the subject; the result was the Pulitzer Prize and the T.S. Eliot prize.

Stag’s Leap has now been transformed into a performance, devised and directed by Nancy Borgenicht. The shows at the playhouse are Friday and Saturday, Oct. 26 and 27, at 7 p.m.

Saturday’s performance includes a reception after the show with the cast, the director and Ms. Olds.

The playhouse is located at 24 Church street in Vineyard Haven. For tickets and more information, visit
