Space 7:10 Theater Company Presents New Play in Fringe Festival

Calliope Arts & Theatre L.L.C. is proud to present the world premiere of John Morogiello’s A Thing For Redheads as a part of the Fifth Anniversary Capital Fringe Festival.

The production will enjoy five performances at the Warehouse (1019 7th Street NW, Washington, DC) from July 11 to 24.

A Thing For Redheads is a brooding comedy about two brothers whose lives are overturned when they are asked to ghostwrite the autobiography of a young, pop singer. “We are very excited to launch Calliope Theatre & Arts with this production,” declares founder and producer Leon Levenson, “The script is funny, which everyone expects from something by John Morogiello; but it’s also emotional, which is a departure.” The cast includes (in alphabetical order) Lori Boyd, Jim Gagne, Ian Blackwell Rogers, and
Charlene V. Smith. The play is directed by Juliana Avery.

Author John Morogiello is a Playwright in Residence with the Maryland State Arts Council.
