Feb. 24-Mar. 2: Seminar
It’s not too late to see the D.C. area premiere of Seminar by Pulitzer Prize nominee Theresa Rebeck. The comedy follows four aspiring young novelists who sign up for private lessons with an internationally-acclaimed literary figure, but find themselves learning more about survival than writing in a classroom climate rife with rivalries and unorthodox teaching methods. Directed by Jerry Whiddon, the play is on stage at Round House Theatre in Bethesda through March 2.

The artist uses drawings, prints and slogans to address socio-political concerns and voice his opposition to certain phobias and stereotypes.
