Cancelled

As of March 16, 2020, all amateur theater productions in Prince George’s County are cancelled or postponed as our community struggles with the coronavirus.

Stay home. Stay safe.

When this is all over there will be more shows to go to.

Until then, please consider donating to the theater of your choice any money you were planning to spend on tickets. Our small, non-profit and volunteer theaters won’t last long without any money coming in.

This sensational drama tells the story of Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball leagues who now works as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy’s bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play baseball. In the powerful, stunning dramatic work that won August Wilson his first Pulitzer Prize, Troy has gone through life in a country where being proud and black meant facing pressures that could crush a man, body and soul. But the 1950’s are yielding to the new spirit of liberation in the 1960’s. It’s a spirit that is making him a stranger, angry and afraid, in a world he never knew and to a wife and son he understands less and less.

General Admission – $22.00, Seniors (62+) & Students – $17.00.
Group Rates(10 or more people): General Admission, Seniors (62+), Students – $15.00.

Location: Greenbelt Community Center Gymnasium 15 Crescent Rd.

Description: In the boarded-up building of the now-closed School For Super-Heroes, alumni of the school’s drama club gather for a secret reunion – and a meeting of the underground Resistance to the repressive Regime. The founders of the club are missing, but they’ve left behind a tantalizing clue: It’s a partial script, telling the story of Theseus, the legendary hero and founder of democracy. Now, new leaders must step forward to lead the club and bring the script to life, mounting an audacious production that may be the last hope to reopen the realm of storytime, rescue the missing heroes, and undermine the Regime’s despotic power.

“RASHEEDA SPEAKING [is] an exquisitely tense and often cringingly funny portrait of racial paranoia…Chilling. An incendiary play by Joel Drake Johnson.” —The New York Times.

“…the racially charged atmosphere thickens fast in RASHEEDA SPEAKING, an acidic depiction of race, power and friendship. Blending darkly awkward workplace comedy with intense racial tension, Johnson’s office-politics thriller is not afraid to push buttons hard.” —Time Out (New York).

“A wild ride…a wallop of a play…a thrilling must-see play.” —New York Magazine.

“‘The doctor will see you now’ takes on a whole new meaning in [this] comedy-drama that’s jagged, jolting and just plain terrific.” —New York Daily News.
