You can travel far and wide, but you'd be hard pressed to find anybody who'll tell you that marriage is easy -- and if you do, that person is probably lying. Coincidentally, lies are reoccurring themes in Nobel Prize-winning writer Harold Pinter's one-act plays "The Lover" and "The Collection", coming to the Lansburgh Theatre in Washington, D.C. "The Lover" alternates between comedy and drama as a couple try to spice up their relationship by faking an affair, while in "The Collection" a pair of married couples add too much spice to their relationship while bitterly interrogating one another about a very real affair that may or may not have happened. Bring a date -- if you dare -- to this evening of rumors and recriminations. [less-]

Proclaimed "the greatest American play ever written," Thornton Wilder's "Our Town" looks at the power of life and death even in the brightest and most unassuming of settings. Winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1938, this hard-hitting drama has been performed on Broadway and beyond. Now, a small cast of just seven characters play what is traditionally a play with over 20 characters. Narrated by the nameless Stage Manager (played by "Angels in America"'s Jon Hudson Odom), the actors often break the fourth wall to address the audience directly. Director Aaron Posner ("Stupid F*cking Bird", "District Merchants") also deploys an ensemble of Bunraku-style puppets to portray the other townspeople beyond the seven central characters. This is "Our Town" like you've never seen it. Don't miss this quietly heartbreaking show at the Olney Theatre Center. [less-]

"Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?" It was the question that rattled the nation in 1954. Convinced that Communists and Soviet spies and sympathizers had infiltrated the U.S., Senator Joseph McCarthy called a total of 395 witnesses to testify against themselves and others. Among them were just two African-Americans: political activist Eslanda Robeson and poet and playwright Langston Hughes. Presented at MetroStage in Alexandria, "Are You Now or Have You Ever Been" is a fictional account of the demons and dilemmas faced by Hughes on the eve of his appearance before McCarthy's infamous subcommittee, performed against a backdrop of searing blues and the haunting words of one of America's greatest writers.
