It's 1976, and Ray, a newly single parent, has only one goal: Keep his twin boys alive. Both of Ray's sons are hemophiliacs, which means that in addition to the regular stresses of single parenthood Ray must also contend with endless hospital trips, rigorous testing and frequent blood transfusions. When Ray meets Roz -- an optimistic and caring doctor with a miracle treatment for his sons' condition -- he thinks that he's found his savior. But miracles aren't always what they appear to be, and life on the cutting edge of biomedicine means moral ambiguity and impossible choices. Powerful, urgent and beautiful, "Roz and Ray" charts the untold story of a devastating chapter of medical and queer history. See why the "Chicago Tribune" deemed this a "very powerful play," when it comes to the stage of Theater J in Washington, DC. [less-]

As the evening unfolds, a desperate, humorous and unchanging universe is revealed, delighting and challenging all those who experience it.

When you picture a B&B, you probably see a charming Victorian, a cozy fireplace, lots of doilies and tchotchkes strewn about. But for Elias and Jenny, the young Brooklyn couple at the center of Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker's "John", there's nothing quaint about their little getaway.

In its first major D.C. production in nearly 30 years, Bertolt Brecht's epic adventure comes to vibrant life in an innovative new production at D.C.'s Source. As corruption and violence rage in the Caucasus Mountains (giving the play its distinctive name), one woman's heroism in saving an abandoned baby is put on trial. But what's at stake is the entire social order. Constellation Theatre Company's 360-degree immersive staging gives you a front-row seat to Brecht's brilliant scenes -- from the heroine's desperate tiptoe across a precarious rope bridge to the frantic courtroom drama that decides everyone's fate. With a cast of 14 actors playing more than 60 vivid characters -- and propelled by a rock-inspired score performed live by a three-piece band -- the play recalls a time much like our own, one of political and social revolution, but fortified with a promise of compassion and hope.
