Bette Bourne, David Grieg, Mark Ravenhill, et al. Part of Kennedy Center's On the Fringe Festival
Three pieces will be presented in the Terrace Theater, including Bette Bourne's autobiographical A Life in Three Acts (October 28 - 30), which has been directed by Mark Ravenhill. This space will also see performances of Gregg Whelan and Gary Winters' Nine Years (November 4-5), which has been developed based on the theatrical presentations they have given as gifts to the people they have met on their nine year journey across the world; and the Traverse Theatre Company's production of David Grieg's Midsummer [a play with songs] (November 11-13), which tells the story of two strangers whose one-night stand turns into a long weekend, filled with excitement and regret.
For family audiences, the series will include One Small Step (November 6-7, Family Theatre), which explores the space race, from Sputnik in 1957 to Apollo 11 in 1969. In this production, from the Oxford Playhouse, two actors play dozens of characters.
