Theater in a match box. On a tabletop. Paper actors on a teeny proscenium stage. Toy theater, not primarily child's play, dates back to early 19th century England and is enjoying a resurgence of interest. Audiences can take a look this weekend in Disney Concert Hall at the Music Center's "Toy Theatre Festival" for families, and at an adult event in Disney's REDCAT space. The free family festival, aimed at ages 6 and up, takes place during the day throughout Disney on Saturday and Sunday.

The first prime-time dramatic special of the new TV season turns out not to have been produced for prime time at all. "The Drug Knot," airing at 8 tonight on Channels 2 and 8, was made as a "CBS Schoolbreak Special" for a weekday afternoon slot on the network, but with growing attention being paid to the national drug problem, CBS moved it to a more visible time period. Good idea.

Yet another cinematic slice of suburban dysfunction, "The Family Tree" works better as a serious look at a family's second chance at happiness than when it pushes its darkly comic agenda about an Ohio community's various peccadilloes. Director Vivi Friedman's inability to successfully reconcile the film's duality undercuts an eclectic cast gamely committed to Mark Lisson's thematically ambitious, if scattered, script. An ill-gotten clonk on the head gives bitter, two-timing wife Bunnie Burnett (Hope Davis)
