Duke (Khris Davis) and Roya (Melis Aker) share a moment in Love in Afghanistan.

Oct. 28-Nov. 17: Love in Afghanistan
In Charles Randolph-Wright’s Love in Afghanistan, hip-hop artist Duke travels to Bagram Airfield to entertain the troops. But his trip takes an unexpected turn when he meets Roya, a beautiful and feisty interpreter. As the two develop a close bond, they learn that some things are worth fighting for, no matter the cost. You can see the play at Arena Stage in Southwest through November 17.

Oct. 28: Acrassicauda
Ever heard someone say they couldn’t live without music? Well Iraqi heavy metal band Acrassicauda risked death just for playing their songs, and some of their fans were killed for listening to them. But tonight at the Black Cat you and your friends can head-bang all you want at the band’s first-ever D.C. show. Doors open at 8 p.m.

Update: The Acrassicauda show has been canceled.

Music: “Garden of Stones” by Acrassicauda
