Many great dining locations nearby, so make an evening of it in the Mount Vernon/Penn Quarter neighborhood.

Wonderful set and costumes. Very evocative. Solid acting skills. Wonderful, beautiful language. Thank goodness for the Washington Stage Guild.

not up to Washington Stage Guild's normal standard - rather long and the ending falls somewhat flat, but still a good evening out.

Quotes & Highlights

“plenty of moments of humor … the success of the Stage Guild production lies in its straightforward presentation of an often brilliant text, and its strong cast … a production so good you’d wish there was more Eliot they could put on.” —MD Theatre Guide
“sparkling banter along the way, in verse that’s light, conversational, and often—as when rest-home matron Lynn Steinmetz positively bellows ‘peace and quiet is our raison d’etre’”—pretty funny in Bill Largess’ nimble mounting.” —City Paper
