Upcoming Theater

LITTLE THING, BIG THING

by Donal O' Kelly. Directed by Rex Daugherty

November 10 - 27 at FLASHPOINT - 916 G St NW

Would you risk your life to save your soul?

Starring Nanna Ingvarsson and Sasha Olinick

A nun and a thief make unlikely partners but are thrown together in a crime thriller comedy to expose corruption in a big oil company, risking their lives but perhaps saving their souls. 

“Impressive . . . impeccable . . . a cloak-and-dagger comedy with a pure but unsentimental heart and a social conscience”  - The New York Times
