  • All My Sons opens November 3 and runs through December 1: “Joe Keller and Herbert Deever, partners in a machine shop during the war, turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men. Deever was sent to prison while Keller escaped punishment and went on to make a lot of money. In a work of tremendous power, a love affair between Keller’s son, Chris, and Ann Deever, Herbert’s daughter, the bitterness of George Keller, who returns from the war to find his father in prison and his father’s partner free, and the reaction of a son to his father’s guilt escalate toward a climax of electrifying intensity.” (Keegan Theatre)

  • Invisible Man plays through October 28; “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)
  • Dirt starts October 17. “This world premiere from the author of Frozen is a stylish, sexy, and unnervingly funny exploration of the mess people make of themselves and their relationships.” (Studio Theater)

Theater J at 1529 16th Street NW

  • Our Class runs through November 4: “Starting in 1926 and spanning 80 years, moving between Poland and America, this epic play has profoundly affected audiences and critics since its premiere at London’s National Theatre. As ten Polish classmates – five Catholic, five Jewish – grow up, their lives take dramatically unexpected turns as their country is torn apart by invading armies, first Soviet, then German, then Soviet again. Friend betrays friend and violence quickly escalates, reaching a crescendo that will forever haunt the survivors.” (Theater J)
