Mae is a sweet-natured woman with just a little baggage -- a $600 million inheritance. When her womanizing boyfriend Henry dallies with her protective aunt, the world seems too much for her. Both women become the object of ridicule and scandal -- but Henry has a plan to win the heiress back. In the lush and opulent land inhabited by the Hamptons' one percent, where money and status determine everything, can love conquer all?

Molière's masterpiece "Tartuffe" is a hilarious farce that holds a mirror up to the face of hypocrisy, even as it reflects the human willingness to be sold "a bill of goods." While a con man spins lies to achieve his own goals, those who speak the truth find that sometimes people would rather not listen to it. In 2018, as in 1664, this classic comedy tickles us with the unsettling truth that there are some kinds of gullibility from which only a miracle can save us.

What did our founding fathers mean when they wrote all those high-minded words about freedom? In playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker's "Jefferson's Garden", two characters straddle the line between the founders' good intentions and reality. During the tumultuous founding of the United States, Christian, a Quaker, is desperate to join the revolution and fight for freedom despite his pacifist beliefs. Susannah, a slave, is tempted to fight for the British, who have promised to set her free after the war. When the two cross paths, the contradictions inherent in "a nation conceived in liberty" are brought into harsh light. As Christian and Susannah meet figures like Thomas Jefferson, George Mason and Sally Hemings, they uncover the compromises our founders made, compromises that still echo today. "Jefferson's Garden" is a timely meditation on the realities of freedom of America at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. [less-]

Spanning time from the invention of the wheel to modern-day suburbia, "The Skin of Our Teeth" is Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Thornton Wilder at his most delightfully playful and provocative. Constellation Theatre Company presents this allegorical satire following the Antrobus family of New Jersey, and their melodramatic maid Sabina, as the perpetually befuddled yet indefatigable clan deals with mammoths and dinosaurs in their living room, multiple Ice Ages, biblical floods, and -- horrors upon horrors -- political conventions, persevering in the face of an absurd series of catastrophes. Through it all, "The Skin of Our Teeth" is also the story of the theater company putting on the play, adding yet another layer of meaning as this wildly entertaining production from Constellation Theatre Company takes the stage of the Source in Washington D.C.

Scott Fitzgerald Theatre at Rockville Civic Center Park. [less-]
