Washington National Cathedral
Founded in 1907, the Cathedral has served as a grand spiritual center where Americans unite to worship and pray, mourn the passing of world leaders, and confront the pressing moral and social issues of the day. Visitors may worship, take a tour of the building, walk through the gardens, see an exhibit or listen to a choir. Every president of the United States, since the cathedral's founding, has attended services or visited the cathedral. The Cathedral will host a free special event We Shall Not Be Moved: Sanctuary, Witness And Covenant A Tribute To Dr. King this Monday, January 16 at 2:00 pm.
Theatre and Conversation: An
Evening of Kafka
Join the Alliance for New Music Theatre at the President Woodrow Wilson House on Wednesday, January 18, for a performance of Franz Kafka's riveting 1917 short story A Report to an Academy. See Kafka's half-ape Rot Peter explore the struggle to be human in a broken, oppressive society. Following the performance, the cast will lead a discussion to further examine the themes presented. The performance features actor Drew Valins, whose ongoing solo project Franz Fragments theatrically probes the work of Franz Kafka. Tickets are $20.
