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.
