September 8 - 23 - Washington Center Black Box
A new play about four very real women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe De Gouge, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, lose their heads and try to beat back the extremist insanity in the Paris of 1793. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection...that ends in a song and a scaffold.
March 17 - April 1 - Professional World Premiere
Max and Paul are just trying to keep their architecture company afloat, but they accidentally hired the mob to build a police retirement home. They may never get the project done in this screwball comedy, but they are most definitely building madness. If you love those great old comedies from Hollywood’s Golden Era of the 1930s, you will love this!
