Actor, writer and educator, Anu Yadav ('Capers) shifts between multiple characters in her latest solo piece, Meena's Dream. Set to a live, original score combining South Indian classical music with jazz and indie folk, the play tells the story of Meena, a nine-year-old Indian-American girl who wishes her mother, Aisha, could get the medicine she needs. Her plight is complicated when, at night, the Hindu God Lord Krishna himself appears, entreating her help in his war against the worry machine. Patrick Crowley (In Pursuit of Me) directs this world premiere at Silver Spring's Round House Theatre. Learn More

For those steeped in Greek mythology, this outing with the three Tiresias figures is a special treat, but the play also works with a general audience. In just about an hour (with no intermission), three talented actors bring to life this tormented and sublime persona. They provide a fascinating backstory for the blind prophet we know best from the Oedipus plays.

Capricious gods, forbidden love, false prophets, true seers, ancient kings, bandit queens, switched genders, eyes plucked out in fistfuls and a healthy dose of gallows humor. Is the future of mankind a comedy or a tragedy?
The show runs 1 hour, 10 minutes, with no intermission.
