We took public transit. Moderate walk from the U Street station, great for a nice day.

Description

Tribes

January 8 – February 23, 2014

Written by Nina Raine Directed by David Muse   Billy was born deaf into a garrulous academic family who raised him to lip read and integrate into the hearing world. When he meets Sylvia — who’s going deaf herself — Billy decides it’s time to speak on his own terms, sending shock waves through the family. Playing out in sign language, argument, music, and mesmerizing silence, this sophisticated drama examines family, belonging, and the limitations of language. A moving and surprising play from a rising star of the British theatre, presented in cooperation with Gallaudet University.

Water By the Spoonful*_

March 5 – April 13, 2014

Written by Quiara Alegria Hudes Directed by KJ Sanchez   In North Philly, ex-Marine Elliot works at Subway, cares for his dying mom, and leans on his cousin Yaz as he tries to acclimate to civilian life. Online, four addicts cling to their chatroom support group, struggling for another day sober. These lives collide as events small and large threaten their fragile stabilities, in this eloquent and haunting play about resilience, redemption, and families of both blood and choice.

Cock*_

May 14 – June 22, 2014

Written by Mike Bartlett

Directed by David Muse   

John breaks up with his long-term boyfriend. Two weeks later, he’s grateful to be accepted back — and haunted by a passionate and unshakable encounter with a woman. In a world with so many ways to be happy, how do you know the right thing when you have it? Cock detonates the love triangle in this investigation of attraction, ambivalence, and commitment from one of Britain’s most provocative young playwrights.
