NSFW

American Premiere
By Lucy Kirkwood
Directed by Meredith McDonough

May 27 – June 21, 2015
Round House Theatre, 4545 East-West Highway, Bethesda

Money, sex, and Photoshop! NSFW (Not Safe for Work) is a hilarious, biting comedy about power games and privacy in the media and, in particular, how magazines objectify women. When Aiden, editor of “Doghouse” men’s magazine, charges his team of journalists with finding an amateur model for a racy photo spread, he can’t foresee the trouble it will bring. In the aftermath, feature writer and prime casualty, Sam, seeks a lifeline at “Electra,” a stylish women’s magazine that surely can’t be anywhere as bad as his last job…or can it?

Meredith McDonough (Associate Artistic Director of Actor’s Theatre of Louisville) directs a sharp, funny, and timely new play by one of Britain’s most exciting playwrights. “Provocative… outrageous humor” – Evening Standard

NSFW playwright Lucy Kirkwood won the 2014 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, given “to recognize women who have written works of outstanding quality for the English-speaking theater,” for her play Chimerica.

With Danny Gavigan, Laura C. Harris, Deborah HazlettBrandon McCoyTodd Scofield, and James Whalen

Artistic Team:  Scenic Designer Tony Cisek; Costume Designer Frank Labovitz; Sound Designer/Composer Eric Shimelonis

UNCLE VANYA

Area Premiere
By Anton Chekhov, new version by Annie Baker
Directed by John Vreeke

April 8 – May 3, 2015
Round House Theatre, 4545 East-West Highway, Bethesda

This new version of Chekhov’s classic by Annie Baker (Circle Mirror Transformation, The Aliens) is a revelation, bringing modern language to this timeless story of relationships and yearning. Written to create “a version that sounds to our contemporary American ears the way the play sounded to Russian ears during the play’s first productions,” Baker’s award-winning Uncle Vanya reintroduces audiences to Chekhov’s enduring wit, insight, and emotional depth. It was hailed as one of the top 10 shows of 2012 by both The New York Times and New York Magazine.

John Vreeke (The Lyons) directs a powerhouse cast of DC actors in a production that re-envisions our performance space.

Playwright Annie Baker, who adapted Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for her play The Flick.

With Gabriela Fernandez-Coffey, Kimberly Gilbert, Mitchell Hébert, Mark JasterNancy Robinette, Ryan Rilette, Eric Shimelonis, Jerry Whiddon, and Joy Zinoman


Artistic Team: Scenic & Costume Designer Misha Kachman; Lighting Designer Colin K. Bills; Sound Designer/Composer Eric Shimelonis
