A Year of Living Dangerously at DC Fringe Fest

My sister's boyfriend's play at DC Fringe Fest, A Year of Living Dangerously, is good. His name's Brent Englar and he wrote and directed it. One of the characters has a funny but accurate Maryland accent where he pronounces his O's weirdly and it's great.

The theater feels kind of like La MaMa in Manhattan, but there's no nudity. At first I was disappointed because the play seems like it should have nudity, but then I decided that with all the edgy plays at Fringe Fest with edgy titles, it was nice to see a play that didn't go for shock value. It's getting good reviews.

There's one show left on Saturday at 6pm.
