Description

UPDATE #1: There are fewer than 10 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $45 to $52 when the early bird spots are gone or by Sun. Oct. 22nd (whichever comes first). To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be removing those that haven't paid by Sun. Oct. 15th. Make payment to lock in the early bird price and your spot. If you've already made payment, email you received is confirmation that we've received your payment (no need to message me asking for ticket confirmation). This UPDATE has been emailed to the yes RSVPs. I hope to see you there!

Let's get together for drinks and a show!

We'll get together for a drink or two at the theater bar before the show, and then go see "The Lover" and "The Collection." In The Collection, a jealous husband confronts a rival, whom his wife may or may not have met. In The Lover, a married couple calmly plans for their scheduled infidelities. In Pinter’s darkly comic world of revealing silences and pregnant pauses, the characters—and the audience—never know quite where they stand, embracing reality and fantasy with equal conviction. Witty, creative, funny are words that can be used to describe these plays. Following the success of his 2011 production of Old Times, STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn (The Critic) returns to Harold Pinter’s gripping realm of doubt and disquiet to direct a double bill of short plays, considering how we construct our own realities, which truths we tell and which lies we choose to believe. With a career that spanned more than 50 years and earned him the Nobel Prize for Literature, Harold Pinter is considered to be one of the most influential and poetic dramatists of his generation.

I scored for us front row (or close to front row) seats (!) on closing day! Our front row tickets are ordinarily priced at $113 (fees and taxes included). We've got an early bird special for this event of only $45! The first 20 paid sign-ups, or those who pay by Sun. Oct. 22nd (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $52. We have a LIMITED number of spots so make sure to RSVP early AND make payment to secure your spot and get the early bird price! To make payment, please follow the steps in the "Payment" section of the event posting.

I will give everyone their tickets at the venue on the day of the event at the start time. I'll be the one with the red flag (1 foot x 1 foot in size) with the word "ACK" on it! We'll head into the theater at 1:50pm. Drinks are not included in the price, the ticket to the show is.

See you there!

METRO & PARKING

The closest Metro is Gallery Place - Chinatown (Yellow, Green, Red lines), about a 2 minute walk, and Metro Center (Red, Orange, Blue, Silver lines), about a 9 minute walk. I suggest Metro / cabbing / Uber'ing if you can. I also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage. I recommend using parkopedia.com for garage parking planning.

EVENT CHECK-IN

Please be on time. If you are late (arrive after the start time of 1pm), you risk the possibility of not being able to join us for the event. I will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation email as a backup (if you are not on the list, you will be required to show it). When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the PayPal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your PayPal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please log into your PayPal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.

REFUND POLICY

Since this event is paid for in advance, all sales are final unless the event is canceled or rescheduled. If the event is canceled or rescheduled, an UPDATE will be posted at the top of the event posting, and the UPDATE will also be sent as an email to the yes RSVPs. A full refund will be submitted no later than Wednesday of the following week. For rescheduled events, you must let me know within 3 calendar days of the UPDATE email if you are unable to make the new date... no refunds will be given after that time. Thanks for understanding. =)

TICKET RESELL / TRANSFER

Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell / transfer your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. Work out any payment between yourselves, and have the seller only send me (the organizer) a message letting me know the first AND last name, and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot (please also copy them on the message). To obtain their Meetup profile URL, go to their profile from the mobile website or your computer (not the app), and copy & paste the URL from your browser. I host a lot of events and groups, so please let me know the event name and group name the ticket transfer is for. You must let me know by the RSVP close time of 10am on the day of the event.

WEATHER

Should inclement weather (e.g. snow storm, hurricane, etc.) affect our event, we'll need to reschedule or cancel. If any one of the following is not available for service due to inclement weather, we'll need to do so: Metrorail is not running to all stops; Uber (X, SUV, etc.) is not running or available at no more than 2x standard rates; venue(s) are not open. I'll post an UPDATE to the top of the event posting by 10:30am on the day of our event with the details.

SPECIAL NEEDS

If you have any special needs (e.g. wheelchair, dietary for events with food included, etc.), let me know in advance (a week or more before the event) and I will do my best to accommodate (message me through my Meetup profile, do NOT comment on the event posting). If you let me know the day of the event, I cannot guarantee that I will be able to help. Thank you for understanding and I appreciate the courtesy of a heads up!
