Keegan Theatre at Church Street, 1742 Church Street NW
- Osage County has been extended through September 8: “Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award. A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a major new play that unflinchingly — and uproariously — exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.” (Keegan Theatre)

Studio Theatre at 1501 14th Street NW
- Invisible Man opens September 5: “This savage, hypnotic, and impassioned adaptation of Ralph Ellison’s 1952 masterpiece explores bigotry and its effects on the minds of both victims and perpetrators.” (Studio Theater)
Theater J at 1529 16th Street NW
- Body Awareness runs through September 23; “A touching comedy from the Obie Award-winning author of Circle Mirror Transformation. It’s Body Awareness Week at Shirley College, and the non-traditional Vermont family members Phyllis, Joyce and their possibly autistic son Jared are rocked by a visiting photographer and his ‘male gaze.’ As sexuality, identity, role modeling and political-correctness get stirred up, the results are both touching and hilarious.” (Theater J)
