  • Best Medicine Rep holds its next FREE reading June 2 at 2:30pm - "Blood: A Comedy" by David Lee White, directed by Kelsey Yudice. Jacqueline Stanzi is an eccentric life-long atheist and college professor who has lost her tenure for trying to teach intelligent design in a science class. Struggling with confusion and memory loss, Jacqueline decides that the only way to save her mind - and her highly dysfunctional family - from destroying itself is for them all to get religion.

  • Pay-What-You-Can performances are May 23 & 24 at 8pm for Taffety Punk Theatre Company's double-bill of "Antigonick" (an inspiring & contemporary new telling of Sophokles' classic by poet/translator Anne Carson) and "The Fragments of Sappho" (Carson's unparalleled translation of all that remains of Sappho's poetry shaped by choreographer Katie C. Sopoci Drake and director Marcus Kyd with an ensemble of dancers, actors, and musicians). Purchase in advance on online or at the door.

  • Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company presents Rajiv Joseph's "Describe the Night" beginning with Pay-What-You-Will performances May 27 & 28 at 7:30pm. Pay-What-You-Will tickets available for purchase via the TodayTix app/website on the day of the performance starting at 10am and be on sale online until 5pm (or til sold out). If tickets remain, they will be sold at the box office on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 6pm.

  • Avant Bard offers Pay-What-You-Will tickets for A MISANTHROPE (May 30-June 30). Advance-purchase Pay What You Will tickets are available online for previews and on sale online for all other performances beginning the Monday before. Matt Minnicino's A Misanthrope distills Molière's best-known farce into quippy rhyming couplets. And it pokes fun at social flattery with a hot take on the absurdity of modern hot airs. Hypocrisy has never been more hilarious.

  • We Happy Few presents Treasure Island - all around the area in different unique locations. The first is May 4 at the Otis Street Arts Project in Mt Rainier, MD and the others go thru June 8. Check out the schedule and set sail. Audience members 21+ can enjoy a paired cocktail!

  • Now through June 10th, Signature Theatre is accepting submissions from area playwrights for their "SigWorks: Monday Night New Play Readings" series so you can have your work highlighted in a fun and informal setting. Only 4 slots available for the 2019-20 season; Plays must be full-length (no musicals) and playwrights must currently live in DC, Maryland, or Virginia.
