In case you haven’t heard, the future is female—and fiercely funny. At least as told by the Pipeline Playwrights—a collective of sharp-tongued women playwrights from NoVa, each presenting one of five original comedies at this year’s Capital Fringe festival.

If you come to the festival in search of new voices, and up-to-the-minute political theater, HTWOFY 2.0 is the speed-dating theatergoing of your dreams. Each back-to-back play, performed by the same cast of four actors, runs fewer than 15 minutes and centers on a common theme: the “sh*tnado” that has struck our nation’s capital at the hands of the big boys of the Beltway (Trump, Kavanaugh & Bezos to name a few) and how we D.C. dwellers are coping (or not).

Review: How’s That Workin’ Out for Ya? at Capital Fringe

DC Theatre Scene, July 18, 2018 

by Kelly Whealan George 

Full disclosure, I like to go see a play without any advance research. If that is your style, stop reading now and just make your plans to see this play. But if you insist to know a little more, keep reading. How’s That Workin’ Out for Ya? is four subversive comedies by 4 playwrights with 4 actors: 3 women and 1 man. These are not subversive in an inflammatory way but more revolutionary, rebellious, and thought provoking.
