For the adventurous theatergoer who doesn’t mind a bad trip every now and then, D.C.’s experimental Theatre Du Jour presents Last Minute, a director-described “journey” for his troupe, which offers little dialogue and even littler explanation. The play opens to Woman 1 (Kris Roth), bound and gagged, being led by her captor to the chair in which she’ll silently spend the rest of the production. Occasionally she’s joined by Woman 2 (a weirdly watchable Sian Richards), who’s sometimes handcuffed and gagged, sometimes up and about, and in one scene animatedly talking to Woman 1 in German. There’s also a rotund man in clown tie and boxers (Daniel C. Awkward Jr.), Last Minute’s only English speaker. Intrigued? Try to figure out where this mindfuck is going when Last Minute is performed tonight and all Saturdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays, to Sunday, Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the District of Columbia Arts Center, 2438 18th St. NW. $10-$15. (202) 462-7833. (Tricia Olszewski)
