Theater can enable us to see the ways we interact from new perspectives and prompt discussion on topics that do not come up naturally in everyday conversation. We, a small group of D.C. area theater enthusiasts, have formed Arcturus Theater Company to present plays to evoke ideas that will provoke such discussion, and which will engender sensations of joy, discovery, recognition, and even at times horror.
We aim to bring the best stage works, new or old, we can find to the D.C. region at a low price.
Artists may be able to give the world some beauty but to give it reason is impossible. Yet artists can continue to ask questions and seek answers in the hope that reason may at least be discerned. In our small way, we hope to take part in this ongoing dialogue and in so doing bring to ourselves and our audience relevant ideas and feelings we may not otherwise experience.
From September 24 until October 10 of this year, Arcturus Theater Company will present Marilyn Ansevin Austin's play, The Point, showing the effect a middle-aged woman’s succumbing to dementia has on her family and friends, and the way they attempt to make the situation better.
