Arlington [a love story]

“I like your voice, by the way.”

A young woman waits alone in a room for her number to be called. On the other side of the wall, a young man watches her and weighs a choice that could change her destiny and his. The line between dreams and reality blur in this “riveting fever dream of a play” (The New York Times). In a dangerous, dystopian world, what if love is the most powerful act of resistance?


Past Show: The Music Man

“Well, ain’t no call for a boys’ band in this town…”

You got that right. We’re assembling an all female one. In this stripped-down staging of an American classic, we probe a question we’ve been asking since last season’s Men on Boats: who gets to tell our most foundational stories? What if the Music Man you’ve been waiting for all this time wasn’t a man at all…

Adjust the lens. Challenge the tradition. Hear it again for the first time.


The Angry Brigade

*AMERICAN PREMIERE*

Young anarchists try to bring down the Establishment. The police try to stop them. Push to the left, push to the right. Push far enough and you’ll be surprised who you’ll meet. Based on real events in 1970s Britain, The Angry Brigade is a thrilling, funny, theatrical explosion of two halves. Be ready for one of the most compelling plays in Third Rail’s history.



Annapurna

Twenty years ago Emma walked out on Ulysses in the middle of the night, taking their young son with her. That’s given Ulysses two decades to write his magnum opus, perfect his naked cooking techniques, and move into a dingy trailer with a phone-eating dog. But when Emma hears that he’s also battling for his life, she returns to hash out the best and worst of their marriage, and the mysterious circumstances of the night she left.

Annapurna by Sharr White is an hilarious, heartbreaking look at the enormous power of forgiveness.
