Friday, November 5

ON STAGE at the Greenbelt Arts Center

“Cymbeline”  by William Shakespeare opens (its first live performance since March of 2020!) 8 pm. Adapted & directed by Erin Nealer. They’ve taken a page from The Princess Bride to capture the magic of Shakespeare’s text and included a narrator pair – a father and son – reading the story of King Cymbeline and his court.

Cymbeline is one of Shakespeare’s final plays, and it will remind Shakespeare-savvy audience members of classic moments from his greatest hits, and the larger-than-life characters will draw in new Shakespeare fans, as well. Cymbeline is the only Shakespeare play the Rude Mechanicals have never performed – and it’s a perfect way to welcome back live theater! Join them for a sweeping fairytale complete with knights, long-lost princes, brainwashed kings, and murder. Through it all, the clever Princess Imogen and her devoted husband Posthumus fight for true love, justice, and truth.

Three performances only – today, Saturday, and Sunday. No Sunday matinee.) Tickets: $24 General Admission; $22 Senior/Military; $12 Child/Student. Tickets will only be available on-line here and must be purchased in advance. Tickets will NOT be sold at the door. Buy Tickets

Uncle Funsy Productions presents: Wombat Drool  

The hit of 2015’s Capital Fringe Festival comes drooling back in a newly revised and safely socially distanced performance. We all need a few Wombats back in our lives. This show is spent nearly four decades at the National Zoo, many of them as a small mammal biologist. After that, he founded Uncle Funsy Productions, purveyor of things theatrical. He has written numerous sonnets, including one in 45 minutes for WNYC’s The Next Big Thing, songs for the mercifully short-lived Fidel’s Marching Marimba Band, three novels for nobody in particular, and numerous scientific papers.

La Manplesa

FREE film with a guest speaker! Post-screening discussion led by filmmaker Ellie Walton and poet Sami Miranda. 

La Manplesa at 7:30 pm. (52 minutes NR)  On May 5th, 1991, people took to the streets of Washington D.C.’s Mount Pleasant neighborhood to protest the police shooting of Daniel Gomez, a young man from El Salvador. Through testimony, song, poetry, and street theatre, La Manplesa weaves together the collective memory of one of D.C.’s first barrios and dives into the roots of the ‘91 rebellion. As people across the world take to the streets to demand an end to police brutality, the film honors the largely untold stories that have come before us, and explores how artists prompt us to remember what we still have to fight for.
