He may be king, but unlike his older brother Richard the Lionheart, John has no stirring nickname, and everyone from the Pope to his own court seems to think his crown is up for grabs. Taking his audience back to the time of the Magna Carta, Shakespeare slyly commented on the politics of his own day. Now, director Aaron Posner treats you to a toxic brew of ambition and indecision in this rarely staged but timely history. The medieval court is transported to the D.C. stage as King John unfolds at Folger Theatre.

A group of college students band together to tear down the statue of an historical imperialist on campus, sparking a campaign which expands to protests over rising tuition and racial and social inequality. Nope, this isn't set in the U.S. -- rather it's a production straight from the Baxter Theatre Centre at the University of Cape Town. The Fall follows the creation of this South African social movement in 2015, through the words and songs of these students themselves. The Evening Standard raves, "The story is explosive but the storytelling itself is dynamite, as a seven-strong ensemble ... talk, sing, chant, dance and stomp their way through 80 pulsating minutes of anger and sadness." Experience this powerful, timely production at the Studio Theatre in DC.

The Agitators reveals the 45-year friendship and occasional rivalry between two great, rebellious, and flawed American icons: Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Great allies? Yes. But also, at times, great adversaries. The famous abolitionists met as idealistic youngsters in the 1840s, when they were full of hopes, dreams, and a common purpose. As they grew to become the cultural icons we know today, their movements collided, and their friendship was severely tested. This is the story of that 45-year friendship -- from its beginnings in Rochester, through a Civil War, and to the highest halls of government. These two great souls agitated the nation, agitated each other and helped shape the Constitution and the course of American history. Experience the history at Atlas Performing Arts Center through this loving and faithful portrait of two historical figures that also brims with modern urgency and relevance.

Pershing, referring to the over 100,000 Americans who died in World War I.

Winner of 19 major accolades, including multiple Tony, Olivier and Drama Desk Awards, Stephen Daldry’s production of J.B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls continues to astound audiences more than 25 years later with its eerie prescience. Staged by Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Crown) in 1992 at the National Theatre, this reinterpretation of Priestley’s expressionistic thriller has been hailed as one of “the defining productions” of modern British theatre, “a work of great directorial daring, breathtaking visual invention and passionate moral urgency” by London's Daily Telegraph. A festive evening at the home of the Birlings, a well-heeled British family, is suddenly interrupted by a mysterious visitor: a grim inspector investigating the death of a young woman. As the inspector continues to ask one penetrating question after the next, this close-knit family begins to unravel -- and long-buried secrets surrounding the girl's death are slowly unearthed. Existing simultaneously in 1912, post-war society and modern day, Daldry’s spectacular production is both a plea for a more just society and a warning of what’s to come if we fail to attain it.

Set in a local hair salon and with lines as up-to-date as the morning's news, Shear Madness is a hilarious whodunit with you as a central character. When the salon's landlady is murdered at the outset, a blend of mystery and improvisational theater ensues. Audience members are called upon to match wits with the suspects and try to catch the killer at this wildly popular comedy where "shrieks of laughter night after night" can be heard at the Kennedy Center, according to the Washington Post.
