"Washington's most daring theatre company" ("The New York Times") -- it's a reputation Woolly Mammoth Theatre earned more than a quarter century ago, and it's never been truer than today. And with this three-play package, you'll know you always have something new, daring and just plain fun on the horizon. First up is "Familiar" from Tony-nominated playwright Danai Gurira (Michonne on "The Walking Dead"), a comedy about a Minnesota bride who sets off a family fiasco by insisting on observing a Zimbabwean wedding tradition. Then it's time for "Underground Railroad Game", in which a pair of teachers get down 'n' dirty with our nation's history, tackling race, sex and power in this kaleidoscopic and fearless comedy. And bringing Wooly's season to a close is "Botticelli in the Fire", an ambitious ancient-modern mashup that shows the spark of the culture war between a conservative priest and Italian Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli.

Dubbed both "sweet and cheerfully profane" by "The Washington Post", "An Irish Carol" returns to the Keegan Theatre for its much-anticipated annual holiday visit. Written by Emerald Isle native and Keegan company member Matthew J. Keenan, the play follows one evening in the life of David, a wealthy Dublin pub owner who's lost touch with his own humanity in the interest of self-protection and material success. But this Christmas Eve, David's life may change forever when he's challenged by a voice from the past, provoked by those in the present and faced with the reality of a lonely future. A modern fable told with all the biting humor and incisive candor of its Irish playwright, this gritty twist on Dickens' classic is a D.C. tradition that has played to sold-out audiences for years.
