Furloughed federal employees can take advantage of discounted tickets to the Shakespeare Theatre Company (STC) production of Richard III. Shakespeare Theatre Company (610 F St. NW) is offering FREE tickets to Federal government employees affected by the government shutdown for our production of Richard the Third.

The offer is good for any performance February 5 through 10.

Director David Muse said the production is a timely one. “It’s a great play for now. It’s about a heartless man, a con artist, a man obsessed with winning and power, a misogynist, a spinner of news and misinformation, a man who thrives by beating others, a man who uses and discards people,” he said. “It’s about how a country responds to a leader like this. We watch people negotiate with their own mortality, align themselves with power and resist secretly if at all.”

Use promo code FEDERAL19 when reserving tickets. Tickets may be ordered online, by phone at 202-547-1122 or at the box office. A valid Federal ID is required when picking up tickets at the box office.
