Two-time Pulitzer Prize and MacArthur Genius Award recipient Lynn Nottage’s satirical tale that follows successful African-American publicist Undine, as she stumbles down the social ladder after her husband steals her hard-earned fortune. Broke and now pregnant, Undine is forced to return to her childhood home in the projects, where she must face the realities of the life she left behind. Penned with “the firecracker snap of unexpected humor” (New York Times), Fabulation reveals the folly of outrunning where we come from, and the challenge of returning home. (Runtime: 2 hours with one intermission. This production contains profanity, drug use, and sexual content.)
September is Voter Registration Month. The League of Women Voters’ Vote 411.org campaign, the 2020 One Woman One Vote Festival, and theatreWashington are bringing voting information to theatre patrons across the country and especially to inspire voting-age women in a historic year. 2020 is just around the corner — a major election year and the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment giving women the vote. Look for an information table in the lobby for this performance.
