When you picture a B&B, you probably see a charming Victorian, a cozy fireplace, lots of doilies and tchotchkes strewn about. But for Elias and Jenny, the young Brooklyn couple at the center of Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker's "John", there's nothing quaint about their little getaway. With their relationship in trouble, the couple checks in only to be greeted by a cheerful yet somehow ... off innkeeper. Soon, it becomes apparent that they're not alone. Shot-through with Baker's wit and lyrical beauty, with shades of the supernatural, "John" is "so good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light" ("The New Yorker"). Now you can experience it at Signature Theatre in Arlington. [less-]

It's 1976, and Ray, a newly single parent, has only one goal: Keep his twin boys alive. Both of Ray's sons are hemophiliacs, which means that in addition to the regular stresses of single parenthood Ray must also contend with endless hospital trips, rigorous testing and frequent blood transfusions. When Ray meets Roz -- an optimistic and caring doctor with a miracle treatment for his sons' condition -- he thinks that he's found his savior. But miracles aren't always what they appear to be, and life on the cutting edge of biomedicine means moral ambiguity and impossible choices. Powerful, urgent and beautiful, "Roz and Ray" charts the untold story of a devastating chapter of medical and queer history. See why the "Chicago Tribune" deemed this a "very powerful play," when it comes to the stage of Theater J in Washington, DC. [less-]

In a Vietnamese refugee camp in Arkansas circa 1975, two bereaved Saigon natives find love in a strange new land. So goes "Vietgone", a bold new romantic comedy by "geek theater" impresario Qui Nguyen, an artist famous in New York for productions packed full of martial arts, sword fights and puppetry. Based on the lives of his own parents, "Vietgone" is a slightly more subtle affair, but still reflect Nguyen's irreverent humor and hip-hop-influenced aesthetic as it criss-crosses between the traumatic evacuation of Saigon and a turbulent yet passionate tale of love in the rural United States.
