WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, the new serious comedy by Michael Louis Wells will have its New York premiere at the Ensemble Studio Theatre. The play begins on Election Day, November 4, 1988. Dukakis is about it to be trounced by Bush, and a group of young people face eviction by a mysterious devious landlord. An old Victorian house, inhabited by a series of graduate students, artists and a punk rocker or two, is at the center of the battle as the roommates struggle to save their home, only to discover that the enemy may be closer than they think. Set in an era rife with cynicism, the play confronts the alienation of a disaffected generation struggling for a viable alternative.
