A Capital Fringe Festival Play spans satire, tender poignancy,
and the darkly comic.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - What do you get when you mix a headless leader with the adoring masses, medical bills with romance, and family values with murder? The classic Washington scandalous summer drama or one of the highlights at the inaugural Capital Fringe Festival?

For two weeks this summer, you get Short Works Exploring Dangerous Devotion, brought to the Woolly Mammoth Rehearsal Space by Pushing Boxes Productions as part of the Capital Fringe Festival. The production features three short plays, each of which explores the theme of dangerous devotion: The Leader by Eugène Ionesco, Springtime by María Irene Fornés, and The Book of Leviticus Show by Christopher Durang.
