T2P2 in DC

The Theater of Public Policy will perform in Washington DC this September for a whole week of shows! You won't want to miss any of them!

One of the nation’s best-loved (and only) civics-inspired improv comedy shows, is coming to Washington D.C. The Theater of Public Policy (T2P2 for short) is planning seven nights of on-stage interviews with experts and newsmakers all brought to life through unscripted and unpredictable comedy theater. Four of those dates are part of a residency at Washington Improv Theater.     

 

The Theater of Public Policy D.C. Tour

Sunday September 20 – Church & State: Friends or Frienemies?

You’re not supposed to talk about politics or religion at the dinner table. But what about during an improv comedy show? T2P2 will talk with Americans United for the Separation of Church and State Executive Director the Reverend Barry Lynn about why he thinks God should stay at least 30 feet away from government at all times.

Location: Dance Place (3225 8th Street Northeast, D.C.)
Time: Doors at 7:30 p.m., Show at 8:00 p.m.
Tickets: Available online here

Tuesday September 22 – Infrastructure of Dreams: If we improv, will they come?

They say an improv comedy show about infrastructure investment policy can’t possibly be funny. We’ll find out if they’re right when Vinn White, U.S. DOT Senior Transportation Policy Advisor, and Casey Dinges, Senior Managing Director at the American Society of Civil Engineers, join us to talk roads, bridges, transit, and dedicated lanes for hover-bikes.

Location: Trinidad Theater (1358 Florida Ave, NE, D.C.)
Time: Doors at 7:00 p.m., Show at 8:00 p.m.
