They say there are a million stories in the naked city. How many stories are in a tiny enclave of even tinier houses nestled deep in the Stronghold neighborhood of DC? Turns out, there are quite a few.
This fall, Pinky Swear is partnering with Boneyard Studios and six local playwrights to fill tiny houses with big stories. Thembi Duncan, Ann Fraistat and Shawn Fraistat, Danielle Mohlman, Donna Stout, and Laura Zam will create The Tiny House Plays, a shared world in which the characters’ stories are revealed simultaneously in each space. Pinky Swear Company Member Jessica Aimone will direct this, our most ambitious project to date.
We’re exploring the microcosm of a micro community and inviting you to look in the window, sit at the table, and join the neighborhood as the characters who live there interact in their public and private lives. It’s the ultimate show for getting a peek at what you usually aren’t allowed to see.
We’re having a barbecue and you’re invited. Come and be part of the neighborhood for 3 weekends, September 27 – October 11. Tickets available beginning in August.
Cabaret XXX: Everybody F*cking Dies
Fringe 2014 is just around the corner, and, fittingly, you’re invited to a funeral. It’s the last year in the tent, which made us think about change. Naturally, we then moved on to pondering death (isn’t that what you do?). Then we made a rash decision: We’re killing off our characters.
Allyson, Toni, and Karen are no more. Instead, you’ll meet their friends and relatives, in town for the strangest funeral you’ll ever attend. Our funeral director, Anderson Wells, will conduct the service. Come mourn with us in the only way we know how: by ROCKING THE TENT!
Jessica Aimone will direct a script by Steve Spotswood. Band leader Felix Pages returns…with another awesome medley.
See you in the tent. Bring your beers and tissues.
