The Washington Stage Guild - The 2015-2016 Season of Past & Future

10.1 – 10.25 / 2015

It’s the early 80s, and a pair of sisters struggle over the fate of the family’s movie theatre, as video stores encroach and cable TV looms. Memories come to vivid life as they face some truths, and some selves, they’ve avoided all their lives.

One of the most beloved tales ever to come from Hollywood is being broadcast live in the late 40s.

One of the first works of science fiction ever put on stage hurtles humanity 25,000 years into the future, with GBS’ celebrated wit and a touch of satire.

3.31 – 4.24 / 2016

Three of the world’s greatest writers, Jefferson, Dickens, and Tolstoy all edited or adapted The Bible to suit their own views, and they just might have to pay for that! The dialogue and the ideas soar, as you might expect from these three, in this sizzlingly clever comedy.

I preferred morals to mysteries.

Thomas Jefferson,
The Gospel According to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens, and Count Leo Tolstoy: Discord
