The Candidate Live in Georgetown

Bring a picnic to Dumbarton House or Tudor Place for an evening under the stars.

The Picnic Theatre Company is performing an original parody play adaptation of The Candidate, a 1970s satire of election politics in America, at Dumbarton House (the 27th play, 14th season there) and Tudor Place (first time!) June 12-13-14.

In this satire of electoral politics in America, the heir of a famous political family is tapped to run a hopeless campaign against a powerful incumbent Senator. Be transported to the 1970s with music and costumes on the campaign trail.

Guests are encouraged to bring water. Be sure to remove all trash. Trash receptacles are not provided. Bring mats, blankets or a camp chair. Due to the historic landscape, games, chairs with legs, blow up furniture, red wine etc. are not permitted.

Grounds open at 5:30 pm. The performance begins at 7:00 pm. (90 minutes, no intermission).

Tickets are $20 and all proceeds benefit the museums. Enjoy drinks, a garden picnic, and live performance in the beautiful gardens of Georgetown and support these historic museums.
