The Washington Stage Guild, a fixture on the DC theatre scene since 1986, announces a season of plays that confront us with the perils and pitfalls of refusing to accept the truth, and of questioning, rather than accepting, the facts in front of us. In an era when scientific research is dismissed and statistics are ignored in favor of preferred alternatives, the Stage Guild will take a look at the consequences of that phenomenon in four productions at the Undercroft Theatre in downtown DC. From undisclosed financial dealings in the 1890s, to idealistic hopes and memories during the holidays, and from wartime disappointments, to opposition to social progress, the refusal to face facts and the effect on those who do will take center stage.
