(Oct. 5-28) William's Richard
Shakespeare's Richard III could be a cold dude at times, and you can enjoy his story outdoors before it gets too cold at the PFI Historic Park near Ellicott City, Maryland. The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company presents the play in its very own "movable style," which shifts the action around the park grounds for a few hours.

(Oct. 3-June 2013) Happenings at the Harman
Washington's Shakespeare Theatre Company is staying put and staying warm this season with Happenings at the Harman. The free programming series features cross-genre performances by local artists through June of next year. The musicians, actors, dancers, and puppeteers perform at lunchtime every Wednesday and at happy hour once a month for your convenience. Today Maryland's Quest Visual Theatre blends live action and digital media to tell a soldier's surreal story in I Carry The Flag.
