One Man, 38 Roles: Play-Within-a-Play The Thousandth Night
$20 - $30*
It's 1943 and a group of prisoners is heading from occupied France to Buchenwald concentration camp when an explosion derails the train. Guy de Bonheur, an actor, seizes the opportunity to convince the guards to let him escape. How? By performing Arabian Nights to prove that his plays are not subversive, and he doesn't deserve to be rounded up. Of course, with all of his other actors gone, he'll have to play all the roles himself. And in The Thousandth Night Guy, played by Marcus Kyd, does just that. Written by Carol Wolf, The Thousandth Night is a remarkable blend of comedy and tragedy, not to mention a feat of character acting by the lone performer. Tuesday and Wednesday performances also feature a post-show talkback.

- “[A] rare night at the theatre that both celebrates and shatters the human spirit … a tour de force performance … sensitive, insightful direction … all contribute to a theatrical experience that will linger in the consciousness long after the lights go down.” — Diane Jackson Schnoor, DCMetroTheaterGuide
