Hot-Button Comedy |  Native Gardens

Arena Stage Senior Series
Wednesday, September 27th
Noon


Good fences make good neighbors … right? From the outrageous mind of playwright Karen Zacarías (Destiny of Desire) comes this hot new comedy about the clash of class and culture that pushes well-meaning neighbors over the edge. Tania, a very pregnant Ph.D. candidate, and Pablo, her rising attorney husband, move next door to Virginia and Frank, a deep-rooted D.C. couple with an impeccably trimmed backyard. But when a questionable fence line puts a prize-worthy garden in jeopardy, neighborly rivalry escalates into an all-out border dispute, challenging everyone’s notions of race, privilege and where to draw the line on good taste.

Tickets are $36.  Reservations are required.  Please call the Georgetown Village:  202-999-8988.

Roger D. Stone - Book Event
The Lives of Dillon Ripley: Natural Scientist, Wartime Spy, and Pioneering Leader of the Smithsonian Institution


Thursday, October 26th
6:00 pm
St. John's Episcopal Church 
3240 O Street, NW (entrance on Potomac St)

With its nineteen museums and galleries, nine research facilities, and the National Zoo, The Smithsonian is the world’s largest museum, education, and research complex. Much of it is the work of S. Dillon Ripley (1913-2001), who headed the institution from 1964 to 1985, overseeing the addition of eight new museums, seven research centers, and launching Smithsonian magazine. As Stone reports in this comprehensive biography, Ripley was more than a curator and a world-famous ornithologist. Posted to Ceylon in the mid-1940s, he served as an OSS spy. Stone, a former Time correspondent and bureau chief, served with Ripley on the board of the World Wildlife Fund; he adds his personal recollections to hours of interviews with Ripley and draws on both the Smithsonian archives and Ripley family documents. 

 For a preview of the book, see Mr. Stone's presentation at Politics and Prose.

This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.  Please call the Georgetown Village:  202-999-8988.
