About this show

Theater J presents the world premiere of The Tattooed Girl. Written by Joyce Carol Oates, this adaptation of her critically acclaimed 2003 novel of the same name (albeit with a radically different ending) charts the intimate, tension-filled relationship between a brilliant disease-addled Jewish writer--a wealthy, famous son of Holocaust survivors--and his new personal assistant, the eponymous Alma, carrying with her a hardscrabble past of rural dysfunction, drug addiction, and frightening jags of anti-Semitism. *Groups of 10+ call 202-777-3214, or email [email protected]
