Sarah Benson directs a first-rate cast including Mitchell Hebert and Michael Russotto in House of Gold, a darkly funny story, written by young playwright Gregory S. Moss, about the fate of a six-year-old beauty queen. This funhouse ride into the American psyche conjures up the picture-perfect child -- but can she ever be safe from the adults who created her? To Nov. 28. Woolly Mammoth, 641 D St. NW. Tickets range from $30 to $65. Call 202-393-3939 or visit woollymammoth.net.
