October 31, 2008

Hello everyone, we hope you’ll be joining us for the shows tomorrow and Sunday. Below is a blurb that you can copy and paste. Please forward or send to anyone who might be interested!

eXtreme eXchange and Round House Theatre’s Silver Spring Series present

Rock the Voting Bloc:
X-Plays DC Edition 7

Saturday November 1st at 8pm
Sunday November 2nd at 3pm

On the eve of perhaps the most consequential elections in recent history, many agree that our next President will, in effect, be chosen by the undecided 10-15% of the country. ROCK THE VOTING BLOC delivers a fresh batch of original short plays focusing on voters who don’t fall in lock-step with any one party or ideology. Our XX playwrights have each been asked to write a piece based on one of these “purple voting blocs” – Progressive Evangelicals and Socially Conservative Liberals. As with all X-Plays, ROCK THE VOTING BLOC will be an irreverent, thought provoking and intelligent performance, immediately followed by a moderated discussion between the audience and the artists.

Here’s some interesting reading to get you ready for your pre-election Halloween weekend! A recent AP survey shows that 1 out of 7 voters is still undecided. Meanwhile in MD, ministers are making a last-minute attempt to block a plan to fund schools with slot machines. And whatever your leanings are, here in DC you can always dress up as a political character or a pundit for Halloween.
