Wrap-up: X-Plays DC Edition 4

by

XX!

Last Monday the newest edition of X-plays were presented at Round House Silver Spring.  The audience watched the five plays, waiting to catch references to arm-wrestling, Boxing day, and pipe-organs.  The talk-back, led by Rachel, was an interesting dissection of the issues raised by the plays and the article that was their inspiration.  Extreme Exchange would like to thank all of the writers, directors, and performers who took part in Edition 4!
