The Accidental Pilgrim

October 12 – 28
Thursdays – Saturdays at 7:30 pm
$20 General / $15 DCAC Members

A NEW PLAY BY THEATRE DU JOUR

Directed by B. Stanley

In this newly devised play Theatre Du Jour offers an intimate abstract spectacle with laser focus on humankind’s search for satisfaction. An unfulfilled individual starts on what he believes to be the road to his goals only to find the path is diverted and not as clear as he had imagined. Psychedelic visuals and sound caress the ensemble as they make their way through this decidedly obtuse adventure.

Featuring Jerry Herbilla, Jacquelyn Paulin, Rachel Reed, Kris Roth, and Annetta Dexter Sawyer. Sound design by Rob Gould.

Over inauguration weekend in 2017, WIT presented a one-weekend politically-minded barrage of improv shows called Rise Up! That cathartic, eye-opening, and raw experience stirred something up in DC’s improv community and WIT is thrilled to present this three-week revisitation of politically inspired performances. Rise Up! explores all the ways the personal really is political, and vice versa. Part rallying cry, part group hug, Rise Up! is an artistic response to the life and times we live in.
