Sunday, May 28th, 2017

After three years as a mainstay of the Capital Fringe Festival (Tales of Love and Sausages, Tales of Courage and Poultry, Tales of Marriage and Mozzarella), and an additional four years as a zany Play-in-a-Day (Tales of Honor and Anchovies, Tales of Heroes and Gyros, Tales of Nookie and Gnocchi, Tales of War and Pizza); those Fools are at it again!

This year, one of DC's favorite events evolves into the first ever "Fool For All" festival day! Complete with free workshops, raffle prizes, and a performance of never before seen material!

Kid Commedia!

Bring the kids for a Commedia primer!
They'll learn about stock characters, how our plays are made,
and even get to make a mask they can take home!

Come get physical - with an hour of fun fracas,
boistrous battle and comic combat!
Led by Associate Artist John Bellomo

2:30 - 3:30

Always wanted to come play? Here's your chance!
