Readers of this week's Online Planet will find a brand new, and we hope stimulating, feature "Don't Miss This," a list of especially interesting cultural, political and community events in the Bay Area. Given that "June is Busting Out All Over", listing announcements for the coming month is a daunting task. Herewith are just a few of the attractions available in June: 

"1001", a new play by Jason Grote, Berkeley City Club, 2315 Durant Avenue. Now through June 20.
