Wrap-up: Making Political Theatre With A Pulse


Today, my friends, there is a most positive and generous review of the XX performance by Peter Marks in the Washington Post. Thanks to our friends at The Inkwell and everyone else who helped make this event such a success.

And if you haven’t already, I’d suggest checking out the reviews of the show over at The Inkwell’s blog and also on Arthur Thinks (Hannah’s dad’s blog). There are some pictures on all of these links, but because I know you love photographs…

All of the above photos are by Inkwell member & playwright Melissa Blackall – her new play, The F-Word, will be produced as part of the Inkwell festival next week. We highly suggest checking it out!

And here is a picture of our lovely audience, taken by myself:
