a drama by Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu - Summer 2023
Moses and Kitch stand around on the corner – talking shit, passing the time, and hoping that maybe today will be different. As they dream of their promised land, a stranger wanders into their space with his own agenda and derails their plans. Emotional and lyrical, a provocative riff on Waiting for Godot, Pass Over is a rare piece of politically charged theater by a bold new American voice.
a thriller by William Goldman based on the novel by Stephen King - Fall 2023
Misery follows successful romance novelist Paul Sheldon, who is rescued from a car crash by his “number one fan,” Annie Wilkes, and wakes up captive in her secluded home. While Paul is convalescing, Annie reads his latest book and becomes enraged when she discovers the author has killed off her favorite character, Misery Chastain. The irate Annie has Paul writing as if his life depends on it, and it does.
a dramedy by Harvey Fierstein - Winter 2024
The life of Arnold Beckoff, a torch song-singing, Jewish drag queen living in New York City, is dramatized over the span of the late 1970s and 1980s. Told with a likable, human voice, Torch Song follows Arnold’s odyssey to find happiness in New York. All he wants is a husband, a child, and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect.
a musical with book, lyrics, and music by Jonathan Larson - Spring 2024
Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's Rent follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom and Angel. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.

Since a group of neighbors formed a play-reading group in 1949, Dominion Stage has been a part of the Arlington community. We are Arlington's oldest community theatre. We seek stories that reflect everyone in our community, especially those not usually highlighted. To us, "Anything But Predictable" means you'll see stories about the good, the bad, the ugly, and even the undead. We've explored incest, suicide, drug abuse, mental illness, sexuality, prejudice, puppet sex, crime, and life in a trailer park, on a desert isle, in a locker room, and at a boarding school. Sometimes we're not the best choice for grandma or the kids, and we'll let you know. We ARE the best choice for theatre that makes you think, helps you understand, makes you laugh (frequently), makes you cry (sometimes), and celebrates the community we are all a part of.
Dominion Stage's current black-box home (the original library of Gunston Middle School) gives us space to present musicals with large casts and sets, as well as the intimacy necessary for more dramatic pieces and comedies. Seating configuration changes with each production, and audience members are rarely more than a few steps from the actors. There is plentiful free parking. Patrons enter via the main glass doors, pass Theatre One on the left, and follow the signs down the hall to Theatre Two, or may drive around the building to park closer to Theatre Two's entrance (look for the neon art). The closest Metro (though not walkable) is Pentagon City.
