Hard Bargain Players

Hard Bargain Players Theater in the Woods

Location: 2001 Bryan Point Road • Accokeek, MD 20607

On many summer evenings the Amphitheater at Hard Bargain Farm shoots light beyond branch and leaf. Under this canopy of towering trees, local music and theater come alive, and after a brief stroll down a lit path, the best-kept secret in central Maryland reveals itself.

Built in the early 1930s by Alice and Henry Ferguson, the original stage was merely a half-circle of concrete set in a natural amphitheater in the woods of their Hard Bargain Farm. For many years the Fergusons used the amphitheater as a place to gather with their friends and neighbors on summer evenings. They would entertain themselves by dressing up in elaborate costumes and putting on amateur plays.

It became a Hard Bargain tradition.

Theater in the Woods is an outdoor amphitheater and the Hard Bargain Players perform rain or shine. Shows are only canceled in the event of severe weather conditions. There is limited covered seating and umbrellas are encouraged. Comfortable clothing and bug spray are also highly recommended.
