I drove around for half an hour before finding street parking. There's free parking in a lot on Fridays and Saturdays.

Emoting and words, words, words. I was so glad when intermission came so that I could leave.

A nice opportunity to see one of Tennessee Williams' lesser known plays - but there's a reason for this. It's slow moving and sometimes confusing to follow. Not for casual theatre goers.

Absolutely wonderful! A fascinating but profoundly sad play. Acting was at the highest level in two very difficult roles.

About the Ticket Supplier: Spooky Action Theater

Spooky Action Theater (SAT) is a dynamic, young theater company in Washington, DC. We designed and built a versatile performance space that accommodates multiple seating and staging configurations. Movable walls and audience risers enable us to approach each production with a fresh perspective.

Albert Einstein coined the term spooky action at a distance to describe a bit of quantum mechanics even he found incredible: two particles can become entangled such that, forever after, a change in one is matched by instant change in the other, no matter what the distance between them. Spooky action happens when actors provide a bare framework to be fleshed out by the imagination of the audience, creating the world and action of the play.
