Faction of Fools Theatre Company

Join the Fools for a celebration of the bones of Commedia dell'Arte: the scenario. In the Renaissance, actors used a scenario, a written outline, to improvise action and dialogue. The Fools will present their own modern take on a Renaissance scenario, showcasing the experimental play and physical comedy that exemplifies Commedia dell'Arte.

How can you find us?? The performance will be at the black box theatre inside the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop at 545 7th Street SE, Washington, DC 20003. CHAW is located by Eastern Market metro stop. Street parking is available on a first come first served basis.


Currently, audience members are not required to wear a mask. Faction of Fools reserves the right to amend this policy depending on the state of the pandemic. Regardless, masks will be available at the box office.

All staff and performers at Faction of Fools Theatre Company are vaccinated against Covid-19 and test weekly. We strongly recommend our audience members to follow CDC guidance and acquire the latest Covid booster shot.

We are thrilled to offer a sliding scale ticket price!

We’re offering three options:

$15: Market rate ticket price
$20: "Pay it Forward" price
$10: Lower income / Child price

This allows a ticket to be obtained at multiple price points based on the circumstances of the purchaser. To create a structure where all can enjoy financially accessible theatre, those with access to more resources pay more per ticket which provides the ability for those with less access to pay less.

Can't wait to see you at the show!
