LET'S KICK OFF THE 2018 ELECTION YEAR WITH A NIGHT AT THE THEATRE AND POLITICS!
First make sure you request your absentee ballot at www.VoteFromAbroad.org and then join us to commemorate the Women’s March Anniversary on Friday, January 19 at the Gladstone Theatre for GROUNDED by George Brant, a sweet and searing portrait of an American woman fighter pilot. Show time is 7:30 pm. Meet Rachel Eugster in the lobby around 7:15 pm!
After the show, let's troop across the street together to Trattoria Caffe Italia to talk over dessert and coffee or drinks (15% off for Gladstone patrons).
Why this play? Eleanor Crowder directs. Alexis Scott stars in this searing play, a recent off-Broadway hit for Anne Hathaway. As the director says, “If you pay taxes, you finance wars. This play zooms us in on the bunkers, on the choices, on the costs of that mission. Playwright George Brant drops us smack into the target zone for today’s warfare, and makes a distant war very personal.” We think that, and the reality of being a woman in warfare presented from an American perspective, offers plenty to interest the members of Democrats Abroad!
