Faction of Fools presents the first annual "Fool for All"!  Over thirty of DC’s favorite actors present a sampler platter of high-octane physical comedy on the themes of heartache and hunger pangs. There are seven different one-act plays in the collection, and a different combination of four pieces will be served up at each performance.

Faction of Fools is DC’s only theatre company devoted specifically to the classical masked comedy style known as Commedia dell’Arte.  Join the Fools to enjoy famous characters such as Arlecchino (Harlequin) and Pantalone (the Pantaloon) in traditional scenarios of pounding hearts and growling stomachs.

Appropriate for ages 13 and up.  Running time is approximately 65 minutes.
