Taffety Punk and the Wolf Trap opera join forces in Wolf Trap's LUCRETIA PROJECT to present Lucrece's shockingly resonant story and raise awareness about violence against women.

Join us on June 11 as we bring activists and community together to promote positive action.

The Taffety Punk bootleggers return to tackle another of Shakespeare’s lesser known works. This amazing play, too often conflated with parts 2 & 3, is seldom performed on its own. We will stage the entire play, battles and all, in a single day. Bootleg Shakespeare is the most exciting theatre event of the year.


Explore theatre like a Punk! Tear into the Greek epic Antigone under the guidance of CHAW’s resident theatre company Taffety Punk to create a unique telling of this powerful story. Over three weeks, participants build skills in a variety of disciplines, including scene work, text analysis, music, movement, and combat training, culminating in an evening performance for the public. This fun and creative theatre-focused not-camp is intended for ages 13-17.

In the Belly of the Whale
(aka the Jonah Play)

by Georgette Kelly

Directed by Lise Bruneau
Capitol Hill Arts Workshop
545 7th Street SE WDC 20003
October 1 — 22



    Astrid is a sculptor. Domino is a hoarder. Jona is a writer. Calliope is a parrot. They all live in a Manhattan studio apartment building. When it begins to rain…and rain…and rain…they pile into one of Astrid’s sculptures and float out to sea. The adventure that ensues tests their endurance, as they lose one world and create another in the belly of a whale. This new take on the biblical story of Jonah asks: What does it mean to be swallowed, by a great fish? By a city? By yourself?
