FIELD TRIP THEATRE ANNOUNCES 2013-2014 SEASON: Emerging Theatre Company to Produce New Plays by Local Playwrights
Flight. Graphic Novels. A ladyshaped lovedrug. And, yes, even porn. Local theatre company Field Trip Theatre has it all as they launch their 2013-2014 season of staged readings at Columbia Heights’ The Pinch, starting November 1 with Giant Box of Porn by Patrick Flynn.
Field Trip Theatre is committed to supporting emerging artists through development and production of new plays that engage diverse audiences and reﬂect the perspectives and identities of The District. Field Trip value innovative storytelling and uncensored artistry that serves the diverse community of Washington, DC.
Artistic Director Danielle Mohlman, a local playwright herself, said, “I’m really looking forward to working with so many interesting and promising playwrights this season. Each playwright brings a different voice and a new perspective to the table. I’m excited to collaborate with these playwrights and be a part of their process.”

The Pinch in Columbia Heights
Young couple Ron and Kate return from a trip to find a giant box of porn in their living room. This comedy explores life’s most important questions: What kind of burglar breaks in and leaves porn? Is it okay to buy baby paraphernalia just because it’s on sale? And, most importantly, who still has a VHS player?
Directed by Maureen Monterubio
Dramaturgy by Megan Westman
Ron - TD Smith
Kate - Sara Dabney Tisdale
Vanessa - Morganne Davies

The Pinch is located at 3548 14th St NW, accessible by Metro at the Columbia Heights station.
Field Trip Theatre General Auditions
DC-area actors – Field Trip Theatre wants to get to know you! We have several exciting projects coming up including a couple of 24-hour theatre festivals, a production at the 2014 Capital Fringe Festival, and four kick-ass staged readings from local playwrights. We’d love to meet you and give our directors an opportunity to see you auditions.
We understand that a standard monologue audition may not be your cup of tea, so we’re giving you the option to bring in either a monologue or a scene. (If performing a scene, don’t forget to bring a scene partner.) Introduce us to your favorite new playwright – contemporary scenes and monologues are preferred.
Saturday, October 5th from 12PM to 4PM
Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Rehearsal Hall

A Lighting Designer’s Perspective
by Chris Holland
Designing at The Mountain has come a long way in the past four years. For those of you not familiar with the Capital Fringe Festival, it operates like most festivals where the plot is already hung and circuited when you walk into the space. (You don’t get to change anything — color, focus, channeling, nothing.) So it’s a crap shoot. Sometimes you get lots of options and sometimes you get the opportunity to see how good you really are. And what you can do with a half dozen PARS and some clip lights.

“Fallbeil is an impressive, accomplished production that must be seen to be believed. You don’t want to miss this one.”
