[Apologies if you are receiving this email in duplicate.] ...................................... September Capitol Hill Theater Fest reprises Capital Fringe Festival's 2006 hit 'IN PURSUIT OF THE ENGLISH: ROSE' following European Premiere and 'LOVE & WAR: the Bard's Women' Dear Friends: Here are two announcements about upcoming performances of mine. Many thanks indeed to all of you who came to these shows at the Capital Fringe Festival! Hope you are all well, ~~Hilary Capitol Hill's The Corner Store reprises the Sold Out Capital Fringe Festival play, Fresh from its European Premiere, "IN PURSUIT OF THE ENGLISH: ROSE," September 7 & 9 at "Theater Fest" near Eastern Market. After selling out at the 2006 Capital Fringe Festival and last month delighting England's International Doris Lessing Conference, " In Pursuit of the English: Rose" plays The Corner Store's Capitol Hill Theater Fest Friday, 7 September, and Sunday, 9 September, as part of the Eastern Market neighborhood's September "Theater Fest." Laugh, cry, and fall in love with a cockney woman as Washington actress Hilary Kacser recreates Post-World War II London in her live solo dramatization, "In Pursuit of the English: Rose." In this original one-woman adaptation of the memoir by acclaimed writer Doris Lessing, Kacser portrays "Rose," a survivor of the London Blitz who recounts her experiences with wit and pathos. Sponsored by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, "In Pursuit of the English: Rose" is based on Lessing's memoir, originally titled "In Pursuit of the English," now a one-woman play, using humor and love of humanity to explore themes of survival in the face of disaster that are relevant today. "Lessing imbued Rose with real and sympathetic characteristics, and Kacser captures every one of them. Kacser's extraordinarily detailed characterization��is minutely observed and displayed to us with exquisite specificity. Indeed, Kacser achieves the apex of the actor's art: she disappears into her character. For sixty minutes a moment in an ordinary life sixty years ago is made as clear to us as the outline of our own hands." ( --DC Theatre Scene) The Corner Store, 900 South Carolina Avenue, SE. Tickets are $25. September 7 and 9, 2007. Friday 8 PM and Sunday 2 PM. Details can be found at www.PostWarRose.blogspot.com, or call[masked]-5919. -More- One block from Capitol Hill's Eastern Market, the charming and innovative Corner Store Gallery and Art Studio is branching out into theatrical production all September long. Sculptor Kris Swanson presents a number of winning plays from DC's Capital Fringe Festival, with "Plays and Players," an accompanying Visual Art Show in her gallery featuring ten local artists, culminating in two solo performances by DC favorite and national star Robert Prosky. -More- Capitol Hill's The Corner Store reprises 2007 Capital Fringe Festival's "LOVE & WAR: the Bard's Women," at September's "Theater Fest" in the Eastern Market neighborhood Fresh from its 2007 Capital Fringe Festival triumph, "LOVE & WAR: the Bard's Women" (formerly titled "LOVE & WAR: with the Bard's Broads & Dames"), celebrates Shakespeare's women for one performance only at The Corner Store's Capitol Hill Theater Fest Friday, September 28, part of the Eastern Market neighborhood's September "Theater Fest." This two-part celebration of Shakespeare's women synergizes a unified play like two symphonic movements embracing in a kiss. Exploring war as a variety of heroines, from Hecate and the three witches to Katherina in "The Taming of the Shrew," Actor-Manager Hilary Kacser, "portrays these ladies with stirring word and deft dance, echoed and complemented by Jordan Boughrum, Jennifer Crooks [also the Creator-Director] and Liesyl Franz," says Bob Morrison ( --CapFringe PhotoBlog). Jason B. McIntosh and Mike Wong round out the ensemble as love prevails and Juliet answers letters with comic and touching effect. Friday, September 28, 2007, at 8 PM. $25. The Corner Store, 900 South Carolina Avenue, SE. Details can be found at http://groups.msn..., or call[masked]-5919. Attached please find press releases further detailing the plays and September's "Theater Fest" at the Corner Store, 900 South Carolina Avenue, SE, Washington, DC, 20003.
