Mosaic Theater Company of DC will return to in-person production at H Street’s Atlas Performing Arts Center with six new plays in its seventh season, while continuing to provide streaming options for those who cannot attend live shows. (See the COVID policies put in place by the Atlas Performing Arts Center.)
“This season of new work is emblematic of Mosaic: a group of culturally eclectic artists exploring expansive questions about lineage, cycles of consequence, and the moments when pivotal relationships shift,” said the Core Season Planning Team, who collaboratively curated the season, “these six plays couldn’t be more relevant in their self-reflection, their daring emotionality, and their varied aesthetics; and, we hope they can be a vehicle for connection and healing as we re-enter the theater space after so many months of dark stages.”
Dates and details on the 2021-2022 season are:
