Tax assistance
Tax returns can be tricky. Get help from AARP Tax-Aide and the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program on Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Make sure to bring your W-2, a photo I.D., last year’s tax return and Social Security cards for all dependents. Hey, it might not be fun, but it’s useful.

Through March 6
One-act play festival
Only about 22 percent of all plays produced in the United States are written by women, according to a 2015 Dramatist Guild/Lilly Awards survey. When Theresa Coleman Wash of TeCo Theatrical Productions saw that, she decided to produce “Down for the Count,” a one-act play festival featuring six plays by female writers.

Jazz jam
It’s the second Sunday of the month, which means Labyrinth Walk Coffee House, inside Unitarian Universalist Church of Oak Cliff, will host a jazz jam. So what if you’re not a musician? The event is BYOB, so show up at 5 p.m. with a bottle of bubbly and get ready to jitterbug.

Elayne Boosler
Elayne Boosler rose to fame in 1985 when “Party of One,” the comedy special she starred in and personally financed, debuted on Showtime. Her act tends to center around her favorite subjects: politics, animal rights and baseball. Catch her live at 8 p.m.

March 19-20
River of fundament
Filmmakers Matthew Barney and Jonathan Bepler drew their inspiration from Norman Mailer’s 1983 novel “Ancient Evenings,” which explores the subject of reincarnation, among other things. Originally envisioned as an opera, this project took five years to film. Screenings start at 2 p.m. and run until 8 p.m. Thankfully, there will be two intermissions per showing.
