“Twelve Angry Women.” 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 9 and 10. This will be a 70-minute performance. Find details here. Tickets must be purchased online; there will be no door sales.

At the Old Greenbelt Theatre


“3000 Years of Longing” opens. Dr. Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is an academic — content with life and a creature of reason. While in Istanbul attending a conference, she happens to encounter a Djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom. As a scholar of story and mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong. But eventually,  she is beguiled by his fantastical tales of the past and makes a wish that surprises them both. Click for times and tickets.

“Emily the Criminal” continues. 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.

The Blues Festival continues inside: when Clarence “The Blues Man” Turner is in the cafe, you know “It’s Blues Time”! Over the years, Clarence developed signature guitar strokes by using items other than the usual “pick”, including cell phones, microphones, harmonicas and everything else in between. As he puts it, “Why use a pick when there are so many other interesting things to use?” Soon thereafter, Clarence started his explosive blues band, which propelled him to become one of the greatest blues men of this century. Clarence was born into blues and you’ll agree that he’s been appropriately sanctioned; Clarence “The Bluesman” Turner. (8:30 to 11:30pm)
