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.
Readings Begin at 7:00 PM | Touchstone Theatre
February 6, 2023 | UNCLE VANYA
By Anton Chekhov
Adapted by Nate Burger | Directed by Eva Breneman
Chekhov’s revered story of tradition and transformation, filtered through the heart and mind of Nate Burger.
February 20, 2023 | AGAMEMNON AND CLYTEMNESTRA
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.
