Only a few parking spaces at the theatre, but plenty of street parking. If you'd like to combine the theatre with dining or shopping, consider parking at the free garage over the Harris Teeter in Shirlington Village. There's a walking bridge directly across from that over Four Mile Run, a 5 minute walk to the theatre.

Parking can be a bit of a challenge so give yourself enough time to walk a couple of blocks.

Brilliant play - one of the Bard's best! And, brilliantly performed. Shakespeare does not get any better than this. Thanks to WAB for putting it on. It was a once in a lifetime experience. P.S. My family is from a town near Stratforf on Avon...continued

Shakespeare's "King John" is a seldom performed history, maybe because the author attempts to compress much of The Hundred Years War into a single play. Nevertheless, the play's performance conveys the ugliness of war (complete with vivid battle...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“This is the way Shakespeare should be, and so often isn’t. What a delight to see it here, now, in its full glory.”—_"DC Metro Theatre Arts":http://www.dcmetrotheaterarts.com/2013/11/02/king-john-at-wsc-avant-bard-by-catherine-artois/  _(Five Star Review)
“Highly recommended — They don’t perform Shakespeare’s King John much any more, and that’s a damn shame. When it’s done right – as it is in WSC Avant Bard’s excellent production – it is exciting, provocative, and uproariously funny.”—DC Theatre Scene 
“[WSC Avant Bard]’s quite delightful production of this clever and powerful seldom-seen play is a welcome relief from endless Romeo and Juliet’s and all the other rehashed standbys…theatre aficionados take note: this is a rare and excellent performance to add to your collection.”—MD Theatre Guide
