Scratch that Itch


Bruce Norris’s The Pain and the Itch is a tricky piece of dramatic machinery. Its structure is carefully convoluted, painstakingly difficult, and yet, by the end, complete and exact.

One Act Festival celebrates campus theater

One Act Festival celebrates campus theater


Georgetown’s theater scene can be a little insular. Even the theater kids admit it—the different performance groups tend be exclusive, all the plays feature the same actors, and a lot of the theater kids hang out with each other. And so the average Hoya could be forgiven for not realizing that Georgetown theater is blowing up.

A lot of hard work clearly went into Getting Out, Georgetown theater’s first main production of the year. Premiering only a few weeks after casting, and featuring many newbies in Georgetown theater, the show tries to do many things, all at once: an emotional study of a woman who has been through an awful lot,…
