The Kennedy Center's ninth annual Page to Stage Festival offers free readings and open rehearsals of plays and musicals being developed by more than 40 area theater companies, including Signature, Ganymede Arts, Theater J and Rorschach. Among the offerings of particular appeal to gay audiences is Washington Shakespeare Company's production of Redd Reidenhude by Arthur Roach, a PG-13 version of the Little Red Riding Hood story, in which the big bad wolf falls for Red Riding's younger brother. And there's also Ganymede Arts' production of Kuchu Uganda by Bob Bartlett, which focuses on the proposed death penalty for homosexuals in Uganda and the alarming support it has had from some American religious leaders. Saturday, Sept. 4, through Monday, Sept. 6. Kennedy Center. Free. Call 202-467-4600 or visit kennedy-center.org for more details and specific performance times.
