The 4208 Group Announces The 10-Minute Taste: A Modern Take on Dinner Theater
Washington, D.C. - The 4208 Group is making dinner theater hip! Guests can experience The 10-Minute Taste Sunday June 2, 2019 at 6:00 PM, at Busboys & Poets, Takoma, 235 Carroll Street, NW, Washington, DC 20012. The Takoma metro stop is within walking distance of the venue. Tickets are $40-$60 and can be purchased here. The diverse group of playwrights included in this annual theater festival range in age, race, gender and sexual identity. “We wanted to infuse something fresh into the D.C. theater scene,” says Festival Curator, Rahima R. Rice.
The 10-Minute Taste is a modern take on dinner theater. Instead of sitting through a full-length musical, or Shakespearean classic, five 10-minute plays are presented while guests dine in a contemporary establishment. Guests will be assigned seating at tables named after notable playwrights, including August Wilson, Lynn Nottage and Jeremy O. Harris.

At The 4208 Group we focus on shining a light on women artists of color. We also work with organizations that showcase and/or empower women artists of color.
