Push the Button
03/25/2023 to 04/07/20231742 Church Street NW, Washington, DC 20036
In a town beset by the sordid shenanigans of a prank-prone Villain, justice finally seems to be served when the celebrated Hero accuses Villain of the worst crime of all: Pushing the Button. But when the dutiful Journalist starts asking the right questions, will convicting the Villain prove to be the wrong answer? This playful and poignant parody of modern morality will ask its audiences to question their very notions of right and wrong, crime and punishment, truth and narrative. But most of all, it will beg the question: “Who Pushed the Button??” Saturdays at 2:00 and 8:00 pm; Sundays at 3:00 and 8:00 pm; Tuesdays-Thursdays at 10:00 am; Friday, March 31 at 8:00 pm; Friday, April 7 at 10:00 am. https://keegantheatre.com/portfolio/push-the-button/
