Josh and Alex, a married couple in an open relationship, invite Darius to share their bed one night. When a new intimate connection begins to form, all three men must come to terms with their individual definitions of love, loyalty, and trust as futures are questioned, relationships are shaken, and commitments are challenged.

A richly textured evocation of New York City as it absorbed wave upon wave of Jewish immigrants from 1897 through the 1940s, Amerike – The Golden Land features Glenn Seven Allen (The Light in the Piazza), Alexandra Frohlinger (Soul Doctor), and others. With a score that weaves in popular period songs heard on the radio and in the theaters along Second Avenue, the show re-creates an authentic soundscape of New York's Lower East Side and of the outer-borough neighborhoods to which the Jewish population gravitated. Its book incorporates the stories and observations of real-life immigrants collected by Zalmen Mlotek and Moishe Rosenfeld — people who, like the vast majority of American immigrants, faced the heartbreak of starting over and the challenges of confronting poverty and racism, both abroad and in their new home.
Rachel has it all: marriage, house, career. So why does she suddenly have this creeping feeling? Did she leave something behind? Or is there something in the walls…?

Potomac Theatre Project presents two shows in repertory...
Arcadia, perhaps Tom Stoppard's most acclaimed play, juggles Newtonian science and chaos theory, the classical and the romantic temperaments, and garden history — along with loss, the fallibility of memory, and the future of humanity. The magnetic force connecting all these elements is sex, "the attraction that Newton left out."
Set during the English Civil War of the 17th century — in PTP's production, the present — Pity in History focuses on the overthrow of the old regime by an insurgency with a rigorous and severe view of the world. Art as religious representation and inspiration is challenged as a tool of possibly demonic privilege.

Woody Sez is a toe-tapping musical portrait, rich with the words and songs of America's great troubadour. It transports the audience through the fascinating, beautiful, and sometimes tragic life of Woody Guthrie. With songs like "This Land Is Your Land" and "So Long, It's Been Good to Know Yuh," a talented group of four actor-musicians bring to life the many people who formed the fabric of his story. Not only was Guthrie a seminal influence on Bob Dylan and Joan Baez; he also inspired generations of Irish folk singers like the Clancy Brothers and Christy Moore. His songs may have told the stories of the disenfranchised in the Dust Bowl, but his recurrent themes speak of famine, worker's rights, and emigrant strife. His legacy defined an American era of social consciousness and political expression that is alive and palpable today.
