PlayPride, the LGBT theatrical festival and competition, kicks off Thursday, Sept. 4., and runs for two weekends.

Among the Texas Theatre’s offerings this weekend are “No No: A Dockumentary,” which takes a deeper look at Dock Ellis, who was infamous for pitching a no-hitter on LSD in 1970.

“Draped Up and Dripped Out,” the exhibition of Houston-based contemporary artists at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center, closes Friday with a reception from 7-10 p.m.

The Wild Detectives hosts local authors Matt Bondurant and David Eric Tomlinson, who join author Eric Shonkwiler on the Dallas stop of his tour for “Above All Men.” The Saturday reading starts at 2 p.m, preceding a book signing.

The Concilio hosts its eighth-annual health and fitness fair, “Get Up, Get Moving,” from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at Kiest Park. The event includes free screenings for kidney, prostate, dental, asthma (for children), blood glucose and cholesterol and HIV/AIDS testing. The North Texas Food Bank will give away more than 40,000 pounds of fruit and vegetables. Activities include Zumba, a rock-climbing wall and tennis clinics.
