Second Saturday Set will meet on the THIRD SATURDAY this month! An Evening of Dinner and Theater on September 21st hosted by Jim and Jane Edmondson.
We will start with dinner at Pulcinella’s in McLean in the large private room at 5:30 pm.
The play begins at 7:30 pm at First Stage in Tysons (1524 Spring Hill Road, McLean — in the Spring Hill Business Center). The troop will perform the regional debut of Trying. The play explores the author’s real experience working for Francis Biddle at his home in Washington, DC from 1967-1968. Judge Biddle, Former Attorney General of the United States under Franklin Roosevelt, and Chief Judge of the American Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, is notoriously hard on his staff as he tries to cement his legacy. Can the old, Philadelphia aristocrat and his young, Canadian assistant bridge the generational divide and come to understand one another in this “comic and touching” play? (The New York Times)
For groups of 21 or more, the ticket price is $25. We need to give First Stage the number of people who will attend by September 7.
Feel free to attend both the dinner and the play, or just one. Let Jim and Jane Edmondson know before September 7th if you will attend. firstname.lastname@example.org 703-821-8391.
