Deadline for submissions for Anacostia Playhouse's New Works Festival

Deadline for submissions for Anacostia Playhouse's New Works Festival

The Anacostia Playhouse asks playwrights to imagine what could happen East of the Anacostia if new residents awoke to find that their new communities no longer had that vibrancy they craved and now they must make a life in a place devoid of the soul that drew them to it.

Let us also imagine the next chapter of the creators as they propose to own their space and, perhaps, to withhold their gifts of soul from the displacers.

Kojo in Your Community: Entrepreneurship East of the River

H7MmDSFI-2.jpeg

What does it take to open a business in a neighborhood that some residents feel has traditionally lacked shops, restaurants and entertainment? 

As development ramps up East of the River -- a new sports and entertainment arena in Congress Heights, Busboys and Poets in Anacostia, along with smaller local businesses -- are longtime business owners, new entrepreneurs, and job seekers able to take advantage of the new growth? What are the businesses that are setting up shop -- and will they serve the community surrounding them? 

Join Kojo Nnamdi to talk about the landscape of local businesses, jobs and entrepreneurship in Ward 8. 

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. | Recording will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m.

An edited recording of the event will air on WAMU 88.5 FM later in the week.

Anacostia Playhouse

Based on true events, Vivian's Music 1969, is about a bubbly 14-year-old bundle of energy named Vivian, the mysterious jazz legend Luigi Wells, and the racial tensions of a segregated American city in 1969 that all combine in this fantasia on, race, music, and family.

This fantasia for two actors gives Vivian a life, a family, a love of music, and a reason to live; the jazz legend whos back in the neighborhood might be her real father. Can they find each other, before the city explodes?

Shakespeare for the Young presents Adventures In Arden

10:00 AM10:00

Shakespeare for the Young presents Adventures In Arden

Based on Shakespeare’s As You Like ItAdventures in Arden been created by Shakespeare For The Young as an interactive show for 3 to 10 year olds.

SFTYArdenWeb1-2-2.jpg

Children are introduced to a puppet of William Shakespeare, who helps start the story. Large bodied puppets, small hand-held puppets, and shadow puppets help tell the story of unkindness turned to love. Set in Africa, the story takes place in both city and country, in particular in the healing forest of Arden where love between two people blossoms and forgiveness between two sets of brothers takes place. Aided by interactive play with the audience, the actors engage children’s imaginations through Shakespeare’s words, using music of many African instruments as an additional medium. A short workshop for the children follows the play. Children use their bodies and voices to explore the rhythms and beats they heard in Shakespeare’s language during the play.

This is a free event open to the public.

June 8 @ 10:00 Anacostia Playhouse

Klytmnestra: An Epic Slam Poem (Preview)

A priestess enters a cemetery suffused with the shades and apparitions of black culture. Yet she conjures the spirits of a different sort—Orestes, Iphigenia, and Klytmnestra. This dynamic one-woman slam poem is a saga of strong women, the men who seek to destroy them, and the dangerous extremes this kind of society can reach if left unchecked. Fusing Kabuki, African dance, and Greek myth, Theater Alliance’s Klytmnestra: An Epic Slam Poem is a dynamic retelling of the classic tale written to vindicate a mother slain by her own son’s hand.
