Oct. 8-19: Beertown and A Killing Game
Dying can be fun, at least when it's part of a macabre yet comical staged production such as dog & pony dc's A Killing Game. The absurdist play meets party game is on stage at Silver Spring's Round House Theatre through October 19 in repertory with Beertown. A Killing Game starts with the outbreak of a deadly disease, but the rest of this audience participatory show changes a little bit with each performance. In Beertown, audience members become citizens of a small town that digs up its beloved Time Capsule every 5 years. What's in the box? You'll have to see the show to find out.

Oct. 7-16: Blossoming Hangul: Moon Tae Kim
Blossoming Hangul, an exhibition of modern Korean calligraphy by Moon Tae Kim is on view at the Korean Cultural Center in Northwest through October 16. Drawing upon the lyrical lines of the Korean alphabet and its physiological resemblances, Kim toes the line between handwriting and drawings in this contemporary body of work.
