If you’re bummed that you haven’t made it to the Source Festival yet, don’t be. You still have time. This week marks the last of a three-week venture by the Source Theatre Company that featured 18 10-minute plays; visual art; and “Artistic Blind Dates,” in which random artists were set up together and told to create a work in three months. The concluding week of the festival will feature three brand-spanking new, full-length plays by some of the country’s most promising theater talent.
- Tonight at 8 p.m., catch Splinters, written by two-time Lecomte du Noüy prize winner Emily Schwend, about a missing sister and fixing a broken world with toothpicks.
- Tommorow at 8 p.m. is Source Festival-veteran Aaron Wigdor Levy‘s This is Not a Time Bomb, about three Brooklyn prep school boys pondering questions of race, life, and the origins of hip-hop.
- Thursday at 8 p.m., check out It’s Lonely Out in Space by Sean Graney, founder and artistic director of The Hypocrites theater company in Chicago, about an astronaut and the phone call that could change the fate of the universe.
The festival takes place at Source, 1835 14th St. NW. Tickets to full length plays are $18. The festival ends Saturday, July 3.
