Grab some cookies and head to the 59E59 Theater, as Beertown's 20th Quinquennial Time Capsule Day is about to begin and you aren't going to want to miss it. Conceived by Washington DC theater ensemble dog & pony dc, Beertown is am interactive and thought-provoking production about the life and times of a town. It could be any town USA, but in the case of this work, its Beertown; a community dating back to the late 1800s, incorporated around a now defunct brewery. Audience members become participants in a town tradition that dates back to 1904. Each five years, Beertown's time capsule is unearthed and its contents are re-evaluated. After learning more about the town and its history through a whirlwind of flashbacks, you're asked to help determine what will go in the time capsule. A humorous, quirky, evocative and meditative romp, Beertown is worth a swig. And, be sure to bring something edible, a dessert potluck kicks of the proceedings.
