Playwright-performer Keith Hamilton Cobb, directed by Drama Desk nominee Kim Weild, uses his love of language and 30 years of experience in the American theatre to explore Shakespeare, race and America, not necessarily in that order. His 85-minute award-winning play, American Moor, that considers the dilemma of a seasoned African-American thespian auditioning for a role fraught with racial animus, Othello, is an unapologetic peer into a hindering industry irony that stands as metaphor for our most pressing societal condition: a white culture dictating rules of conduct to a non-white one from an often inadvertent place of privilege. Cobb, with a facility for poetry entertains, and with the pathos of a veteran tragedian engages while asking questions that demand answers, and answering questions that too seldom get asked.

This isn't your mom's comedy show, so leave your feelings at home and be prepared to laugh!! Franqi French and Drafthouse DC are bringing some of the funniest ladies from here and across the nation to the Drafthouse Comedy Theater in Washington D.C. A nationally appreciated talent, Franqi's coast to coast appearances include The DC Improv, as well as The World Famous Comedy Store on Sunset Strip, Stand Up NY & DC Drafthouse. An award-winning comic, Franqi has shared the stage with Todd Glass, Donnell Rawlings, Fortune Feimster, Judy Gold and more.
Precipice veterans Bob Adler, Ric Andersen, Heather Benjamin, Daniel Mont, and Sheila Thibodeau are coming to the stage... completely unprepared. You'll want to be there, though, because what happens starts with you. Audience members will submit topic suggestions, whereby the actors will jump into action, relying on their quick wit and chemical alchemy to improvise, on the spot, a completely new comic play that'll have you rolling in the aisles. It's all happening at Imagination Stage's Reeve Theater in Bethesda.
