  • SPECIAL EVENT coming up July 26-29 from Theater Alliance (At Anacostia Playhouse) - The Trans-Atlantic Time Traveling Company by Holly Bass. Three freedwomen travel through the American south in the 1860s with a medicine show, but unlike other snake oil salesmen of the day, these mysterious women give away their healing potions in an attempt to cure a dangerous disease that threatens to destroy future generations. A devised work of dance theater that combines vaudeville, sampling culture and time travel to engage the audience in a conversation about what it means to be free and ways we can move towards an equitable and just society.

  • During the run of their production of #poolparty, Ally Theatre Company presents a Free Staged Reading on July 21 (4pm) of THE HEAD THAT WEARS THE CROWN by Hope Villanueva. Three high schoolers are the queens of their school until Danielle arrives. When she catches the eye of one of their exes, they decide to keep their friend close and their enemy closer until their mean spirited plan for revenge goes far out of control.
