Money, sex and Photoshop are all front-page news in the provocative "NSFW" (Not Safe for Work), coming to Bethesda's Round House Theatre. This biting comedy by award-winning British playwright Lucy Kirkwood takes a hard look at privacy in the media and the ways in which magazines objectify women. When Aiden, editor of the fictional "Doghouse" men's magazine, charges his team of journalists with finding an amateur model for a racy photo spread, he can't foresee the trouble it will bring. What unfolds is an unseemly look at the underbelly of both men's "and" women's newsstand fare. Praised by "The Telegraph" as "richly absorbing and inventive," "NSFW" is a sharp, funny and timely play that may just have you thinking twice about what's on your coffee table. [less-]

The literal call in "The Call" is a phone message from an adoption agency to prospective parents Annie and Peter: A child needs a home. But the metaphorical calls of this moving drama are many -- including the desire for a kind of idealized parenthood, and beyond it, the urgent invitation to respond to hard realities.

If, in a very special edition of the viral "Will It Blend?" infomercials, Tennessee Williams' "The Glass Menagerie", "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" were put in a powerful Blentec Total Blender, the result might just be "The Glass Mendacity". While it's a lampoonish look into what would happen if all of Williams' characters came face-to-face, "The Glass Mendacity" can be enjoyed by anyone with a soft spot for brutish, unfettered, Southern charm. In this hilarious parody, the most feverish, gin-soaked and sweat-stained moments from Williams' often torrid oeuvre are blended together into one hilariously over-heated night of theater. Enjoy this comic valentine to one of America's greatest playwrights in a brilliant new production from The Providence Players of Fairfax. [less-]

In England, to go "on the razzle" means to indulge in a night of drinking, celebration and -- more likely than not -- a bit of misbehavior. In Tom Stoppard's "On the Razzle", two irrepressibly irresponsible young men are left to run an upscale grocery store together, but decide to set out into the big city instead. What ensues is a series of slapstick shenanigans, mistaken identities, misdirected orders, pun-tastic wordplay, double entendres and romantic complications -- all told with the linguistic gymnastics for which Stoppard ("Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead," "Shakespeare in Love") is known. Don't miss this hilarious and joyous farce at Silver Spring Stage. [less-]

It's 1931 in the Soviet Union and things are not what they seem. In the critically acclaimed play "The Letters", a ministry director calls employee Anna into his office for a job-related interview.

There is probably no more dangerous -- or fascinating -- place to visit than the mind of Franz Kafka. From deep within its subterranean reaches, the most terrifying and prophetic images of modern literature have come crawling out. And yet it's into this no-mans-land that "The Trap", the fearless drama from Tadeusz Różewicz, dares to venture. A stunning collage of events, images and sounds that haunted the artist, "The Trap" is not only a psychological portrait, it is also Różewicz's unique vision of Kafka's destiny.
