Apr. 15-May 4: Moth
The U.S. premiere of Moth by Australian playwright Declan Greene is on stage at Studio Theatre in Northwest through May 4. High school is tough on Anime-obsessed Sebastian and his emo-Wiccan best friend Claryssa, but after an awful event occurs on the school’s athletic field, Sebastian embarks on an apocalyptic mission that irreparably changes their relationship. Tom Story directs this dark drama, which includes adult themes and language that may not be appropriate for young audiences.

Apr. 15-May 11: Tender Napalm
You can see the D.C.-area premiere of Tender Napalm by British playwright Philip Ridley at Arlington’s Signature Theatre through May 11. Directed by Matthew Gardiner, the play centers on a man and a woman who are at a crucial point in their relationship, following a terrible event. In this battle-of-the-sexes, the lovers blur the lines between truth and illusion as they sift through the memories that hold them together and those that could tear them apart. The show contains strong language and is not recommended for children.
