Open: 06/18/14- Close: 08/01/14 The Religion Thing
Project Y Theatre Company presents:
"The Religion Thing" by Renee Calarco
directed by Douglas Hall

Mo and Brian are a picture-perfect DC couple: they're smart, they're witty, and they have a beautifully remodeled kitchen. But when Mo's best friend Patti announces she's found Jesus and is putting her own career on hold, Mo must take a closer look at the harder truths surrounding her own marriage. A comedy about relationships, faith, and the fine line between compromise and regret.

"The Religion Thing" was nominated for a Helen Hayes/Charles MacArthur Award for Best New Play in 2013.

The Cast:
Curran Connor, Katharine McLeod, Danielle, O'Farrell, Jamie Geiger, and featuring Project Y Founding Co-Artistic Director, Andrew William Smith

Open: 07/26/14- Close: 07/26/14 She, After
She, After is a one-woman opera detailing the lives of Nora from a Doll's House and Alice from Alice in Wonderland after their stories on paper have ended.

Act I
Nora in the Great Outdoors

Described as "the door slam heard around the world", the ending to Ibsen's "A Doll's House" paved the way for feminist thinking for all the Noras of the 19th century. However, what happens after Nora slams the door? What runs through her head? How does she live with her decision? And more important, what comes next for a woman who has never had to stand on her own two feet? Nora in the Great Outdoors with music by Daniel Felsenfeld and libretto by Will Eno explores just that.

Act II
Alice in the Time of the Jabberwock

Long after Alice falls down the rabbit hole, she finds she cannot escape Wonderland and is now going through menopause.

Open: 08/01/14- Close: 08/24/14 The Law Of Return
Inspired by the events surrounding the polarizing Jay Pollard espionage case, Martin Blank’s original spy thriller The Law of Return depicts the actions of a notorious intelligence analyst abusing his level of access and threatening U.S. national security-or is he?

Whether driven by ideology or personal gain, Pollard, a United States Naval Intelligence analyst based in Suitland, Maryland, removes thousands of classified documents and turns them over to Israel. Once found out by the United States, Pollard leads police on a wild chase through D.C., desperately hoping to get to the Embassy of Israel and seek asylum.

On April 3, 2014 Jay Pollard was the number one trending topic on The New York Times website. President Obama is currently considering pardoning Pollard as part of a hotly debated Middle East peace deal.
