“Emily the Criminal” opens. Click for times. Saddled by student debt and locked out of the job market due to a criminal record, Emily takes a shady gig as a “dummy shopper,” buying goods with stolen credit cards supplied by a handsome and charismatic middleman. Emily soon finds herself seduced by the quick cash and illicit thrills of black-market capitalism, and increasingly interested in her mentor. Together, they hatch a plan to bring their business to the next level in Los Angeles.

 

“Marcel the Shell with No Shoes On.” Click for times. Cast: Jenny Slate, Rosa Salazar, Thomas Mann, Isabella Rossellini. Marcel is an adorable one-inch-tall shell who ekes out a colorful existence with his grandmother Connie and their pet lint, Alan. Once part of a sprawling community of shells, they now live alone as the sole survivors of a mysterious tragedy. But when a documentary filmmaker discovers them amongst the clutter of his Airbnb, the short film he posts online brings Marcel millions of passionate fans, as well as unprecedented dangers and a new hope at finding his long-lost family. A beloved character gets his big-screen debut in this hilarious and heartwarming story about finding connection in the smallest corners.

Live theater returns!!!

The Rude Mechanicals in Residence at the Greenbelt Arts Center present Twelve Angry Women by Reginald Rose. directed by Ed Starr

Twelve Angry Women both tells a story and examines our society. The story is straightforward: twelve strangers must vote guilty or not guilty to decide the future of a young man charged with the murder of his father. Their verdict must be unanimous. The drama is played out in a claustrophobic jury room during an unbearable hot summer day. The environment is a crucible—a vessel that purifies through fire. Each of the jurors is forced to face herself—her life experiences, prejudices, personalities, and biases. Herein lies the ever-ascending drama of the play—the conflicts of every jury member within herself and with her fellow jurors as they examine the evidence.

Performances: September 2, 3, 4, 9, 10. This will be a 70-minute performance. Find details here. Tickets must be purchased online; there will be no door sales.
