Check the listings below for full details on performances at six neighborhood theaters.

Howard Theatre, 620 T Street NW

Keegan Theatre at Church Street, 1742 Church Street NW

  • A Behanding in Spokane” opens March 16. A mysterious stranger is on the hunt for his missing appendage, and two bungling crooks — and a hotel clerk with an aversion to gunfire — are caught up in his dangerous machinations. Scathing and hilarious, ‘Behanding’ is another dazzlingly macabre tale from the brilliant, twisted mind of Martin McDonagh. (Keegan Theatre)

Studio Theatre at 1501 14th Street NW

  • The Motherfucker with the Hat” opened January 30: “Jackie, out on parole and newly sober, is determined to start anew with his childhood sweetheart Veronica, but her unrelenting coke addiction, his slick-talking AA sponsor, and the discovery of another man’s hat in his living room all threaten to derail Jackie’s tenuous progress. With passion, profanity, and genuine vulnerability, Jackie and Veronica untangle their decades of codependence as they wrestle with the painful limitations of trust, desire, and rehabilitation.” (Studio Theater)
  • “4000 Miles” opens March 20: “A compassionate and unsentimental drama about the life-changing relationship between a grandson who can’t face his life and a grandmother who is starting to forget hers.” (Studio Theater)

Theater J at 1529 16th Street NW

  • “Race” runs through March 17. “The latest work by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of ‘Glengarry Glen Ross,’ David Mamet, ruthlessly examines guilt, betrayal and racial posturing. Two male lawyers are called to defend a wealthy white client charged with the rape of a black woman, while their female associate betrays an agenda of her own.” (Theater J)
