The Georgetown Theatre Alumni Board

$2 Beer Every Night

Big Rodent presents Oscar Wilde's dark and witty comedy, now set in a time of Mods vs. Rockers, Prewar vs. Postwar, and Society vs. Free Love. Greed, guilt, and love all vie to control the fate of a family, and all in time to get supper at the club!

Lord Robert Chiltern is a star on the rise, a man who has everything: a promising political career, a beautiful wife, and all associated cliches. But when an old American cohort, Mrs. Cheveley, appears, Lord Chiltern must confront the single dark secret of his past, a secret that could destroy all the good he has done. He turns to his closest friend, the millionaire playboy Lord Goring, who happens to be trying to woo Lord Chiltern's sister. As all sides bicker and maneuver towards the sticky resolution, they must each decide what ends justify unsavory means.

8 Shows, 2 Weeks only. Buy your tickets today!

From five to fifty, one woman's life is sculpted by the bodies she loves along the way: a proud father with Alzheimer's, an abusive bulimic teen, her unwavering husband, and her anorexic son. This journey along the spectrum of masculinity brings science to life and the male body into the spotlight like never before. Sometimes the body is a war zone.
