You can travel far and wide, but you'd be hard pressed to find anybody who'll tell you that marriage is easy -- and if you do, that person is probably lying. Coincidentally, lies are reoccurring themes in Nobel Prize-winning writer Harold Pinter's one-act plays "The Lover" and "The Collection", coming to the Lansburgh Theatre in Washington, D.C. "The Lover" alternates between comedy and drama as a couple try to spice up their relationship by faking an affair, while in "The Collection" a pair of married couples add too much spice to their relationship while bitterly interrogating one another about a very real affair that may or may not have happened. Bring a date -- if you dare -- to this evening of rumors and recriminations. [less-]

You probably know the meme of the cartoon dog surrounded by flames and declaring: "This is fine." But you might not know this classic work that may as well have inspired it. Mild-mannered Mr. Biederman tries to live a blameless life, refusing to acknowledge evil of any kind -- even as the world around him burns. The facade comes crashing down when he allows two smooth-talking guests to move in to his home and they start filling his attic with petrol drums. Part moral fable and part black farce, Alistair Beaton's "The Arsonists" is an elegant, witty translation of Max Frisch's 1958 absurdist comedy "The Firebugs", which was inspired by the Communist takeover of Czechoslovakia in 1948 and satirizes the way in which people can be manipulated into accommodating their own destruction.

CulturalDC brings TBD Immersive's world premiere of "In Cabaret We Trust" to the Blind Whino SW Arts Club. This interactive theatrical experience explores the ties between Weimar Republic-era Berlin and, nearly a century later, what could be DC's future. Set in the 2020s, the cabaret is fighting to stay alive in the capital of the populist-controlled Republic. Congress has revoked DC's Home Rule, and an ultra-conservative lesbian senator now controls the city, which she regards as little more than a filthy, liberal swamp. Under increasing pressure from her constituents to shut down the cabaret, the senator has chosen tonight to make her big move. You're invited to join the Resistance as fire-breathers, aerialists, burlesquers, graffiti artists and more perform throughout the 15,000 square-foot space -- which happens to be a desanctified church with an upstairs and downstairs ready and waiting for you to explore.
