The Arlington Players: Waiting for the Host

When: March 6-13

Where: Live streamed online

As the pandemic begins and life shuts down, the rector of a small church convenes a handful of parishioners via video conference to put on a “passion play.” Chaos ensues when the actors bicker, technology confuses the process and the socially distant endeavor starts to fall apart. Yet, bitten by the acting bug and motivated to recreate Biblical stories in new ways, the group comes together with the help of an unexpected guest in this live streamed “play within a play” by Marc Palmieri. Tickets $8.50.

Authors Ann Radcliffe, the Brontë sisters, Mary Shelley, Louisa May Alcott and Jane Austen will be the focus of a March 24 discussion led by Regency Society of Virginia speaker Katherine Spivey. Participation is free.
