Peter Peters is a Washington creature. By day, he lives on a steady diet of sound bites and policy briefs. At night, he dreams of Senate confirmations and missions accomplished. In The Pundit, last year’s Capital Fringe hit, Peters was a media darling who could spit out commentary on everything under the sun, including topics […]

‘Is He Dead?’ at Providence Players of Fairfax by Kim Moeller

Farce: Highly exaggerated situations, improbable plot twists, physical humor, deliberate absurdity or nonsense, and broadly stylized performances.
