Street parking is hard to find. But I was able to find a spot across the street from Whole Foods on P and 15th. There are 2 parking garages nearby, however, if you have an SUV, the clearance height on those garages may not be enough (6'1" - 6"3")

Hilarious and thought provoking. Incredibly well written and superb acting. Haven't seen a show this good in a long time.

The acting was very good, but the play was about so many things that I wouldn't say it was "about" religion at all. I guess I'm saying I couldn't find any clear and consistent focus.

By Renee Calarco

Directed by Joe Calarco

Featuring Will Gartshore, Kimberly Gilbert, Liz Mamana, Joseph Thornhill and Chris Stezin.

Mo and Brian are a picture-perfect DC couple: they’re smart, they’re witty, and they have a beautifully remodeled kitchen. But when Mo’s best friend Patti announces she’s found Jesus and is putting her own career on hold, Mo must take a closer look at the harder truths surrounding her own marriage. A brand new comedy about relationships, faith and the fine line between compromise and regret.

This production is not recommended for audiences under age 17 due to explicit sexual content.
