Constellation Theatre Company reprises playwright Peter Oswald's interpretation of The Ramayana, after its critically celebrated sell-out run in spring 2010, which also earned the company a Helen Hayes Award for percussionist Tom Teasley's sound design. The Hindu tale focuses on Rama, who must conquer the king Ravana to rescue his beautiful wife Sita and to save the world from darkness. To Aug. 21. Source, 1835 14th St. NW. Tickets are $20 to $35.
