Anacostia Playhouse is proud to present two powerful, emotional plays in repertory this summer helmed by two of our favorite directors.
Riches by Lee Blessing and directed by long-time friend, collaborator and colleague Paul Douglas Michnewicz, was first produced under the title War of the Roses (later to become a well-known film). It tells the story of David and Carolyn Rich who “have it all,” in a powerful, disturbing study of a family divided against itself. On their anniversary the Riches return to their honeymoon hotel where Carolyn calmly and unexpectedly announces she wants a divorce. Seducing us with humor and well timed, weighted dialogue, Mr. Blessing then takes the cleverly invented characters through to a chilling end. Featuring Dana Galloway and Adele Robey. TICKETS
Paul Douglas Michnewicz is a founder and a former Artistic Director for Theater Alliance. He has directed at the Kennedy Center, Lisner Auditorium and Strathmore. He is currently the Director of Arts and Events in Reston where he has presented Anna Deavere Smith, Julian Sands, Stephen Lang and Sweet Honey in the Rock among others.
