The Modern Drama Discussion Group
of Washington, DC

Now playing: August 21, 2018


Each month, 35-50 Footlights members meet over dinner with playwrights, directors, and scholars to discuss modern drama. We read the plays on our own, meet at inexpensive restaurants near Washington-area metro stations, and eventually attend performances of most of the plays we've discussed. You can attend our dinner-discussions, join our theater trips, or both. 

Membership is free. We do ask that you read the plays for discussion in advance. There is a $5 charge to attend the discussion. You pay for dinner and theater tickets. Footlights always gets group rates at local theaters. Contributions to Footlights are tax-deductible.

Footlights next meets on Tuesday, August 21  to discuss Gloria, by Branden Jacob-Jenkins. Woolly Mammoth dramaturg Olivia Haller is our guest speaker. Steve Weissman moderates our discussion.

We meet at MeiWah, located at 4457 Willard Avenue, Chevy Chase, Maryland, on the second floor, a short walk from the north entrance of the Friendship Heights metro stop on the red line. Street parking is limited. Garage parking is $5 with a voucher from the restaurant. Dinner is at 6:30; the discussion begins at 7:30 and ends at 9.

The all-inclusive cost for dinner and discussion is $30. Dinner is two appetizers, five main dishes, oranges and fortune cookies. Beverages, including beer, wine and cocktails, may be ordered individually. Cash or check no credit cards, please, and no cash back. You may come at 7:20 for the discussion only for just $5.

Make reservations with Phyllis Bodin, phylbo@verizon.net or 301-986-1768. Reservations will be accepted until noon of the day of the discussion. If you must cancel, please let Phyllis know by noon, Friday, August 17, otherwise you will be responsible for the cost of your dinner.
