Apr. 28-May 18: Failure: A Love Story
The Hub Theatre presents the D.C. area premiere of Failure: A Love Story by Philip Dawkins. Matt Bassett directs this musical, macabre comedy about a trio of sisters in their last year of life. But, before their hearts stop beating the three women fall in love with the same man. Set in Chicago in the late 1920’s, the play traces the siblings’ successes and defeats while exploring the power of love and family. You can check it out in The John Swayze Theatre at the New School of Northern Virginia in Fairfax through May 18.

Apr. 28: Silence
Solas Nua’s Irish Popcorn! series continues tonight at Rírá in Georgetown with a 7 p.m. screening of Silence, directed by Pat Collins. The film is about an Irish ex-pat who returns home after 15 years in search of landscapes free from man-made sound. As he travels through rural areas, meditating on the sounds around him, the protagonist finds himself drawn inward and toward his childhood home.
