Federal Theater Project

Theatre accessible by all

Founded in 2012, the Federal Theatre Project exists to bring free and affordable theatre to under-served populations within the Washington, DC area. Our productions focus primarily on American governance; that is to say, the political process. We focus on removing the mystery from politics and engaging young audiences in the political process early.

The Federal Theatre Project is non-partisan in its offerings. We strive to foster a sense of civic engagement, not a particular agenda.

In short, we want to get audience members to think, not tell them what to think!

Glass Bottles, by DC playwright Jennifer Clements, builds on her ten-minute play of the same name, which appeared last year in festivals produced by Federal Theatre Project, Theater Alliance, and the New York-based Stay Awake Theatre. Juxtaposing perspectives long-steeped in the community along the Anacostia River with those from other parts of the city, the play invites audiences to consider their relationship to place, to nature, and to both local and global

Admission is free, and the play will be directed by Kevin Finkelstein, founder and artistic director of the Federal Theatre Project.

Featuring: Jasmine Jones, William T. NewmanEmily ClassenClaire Derriennic and Zipporah Brown.

This is a developmental work in progress, scheduled for production in 2020.
