Parking lot across street is free weekend evenings, but it fills up -- don't arrive last minute.

Persimmon, just around the corner on Wisconsin Avenue, is great -- not cheap, and don't rush it. We ate at 6 for 8 pm show then walked across street for coffee.

The acting / actors was superb! Incredible feats of memorization -- long soliloquys. The actors were indistinguishable from their characters. Wonderful. (Only disappointment: the ending...but then, I won't spoil it.)

About the Ticket Supplier: Quotidian Theatre Company

The Quotidian Theatre Company’s mission is to present plays in what is known as the natural, realistic, or, more accurately, impressionistic style. This is a theatre without histrionics; the gunshots and car crashes are kept offstage. By providing realistic situations and dialogue, we want to give the audience the impression that they are witnessing events over a backyard fence or through an open window, thus transporting them from detached viewers to involved witnesses.
