At long last, Winter Words is back in person in the Touchstone Theatre! And this season, we’re thrilled to present two world-premiere adaptations, and one world-premiere play written by APT Core Company Members. So join us for a story or three, each with the unforgettable energy of an early table read. Heads up – tickets for these one-night only events are in high demand, and tend to sell out quickly. Time is of the essence.

Tickets are $20, and go on sale Wednesday, January 11 at 10:00 AM CT, online only. If you need assistance with your order, email the APT Box Office at

Chekhov’s revered story of tradition and transformation, filtered through the heart and mind of Nate Burger.


By Aeschylus | Adapted & Directed by David Daniel

David Daniel is a guy who knows his Greeks (see Oedipus, 2021). Don’t miss his fascinating reimagining of this classic about sacrifice, duty and revenge.


Written & Directed by Gavin Lawrence

A local icon’s death signals the end of an era and the beginning of a new look for a once-predominantly African American neighborhood in Washington, DC. A riveting world-premiere from the incredible Gavin Lawrence.
