About

Friends, Countrymen, support independent theater in its purest form! 

Properties! is a story of a bar that changes ownership- a changeover which allegorically reflects the current state of our times.  Without passing judgment or demonizing either side, issues that consume us daily are addressed and discussed --  hilariously!

Like bards of old who gathered in the town square to share their stories, Properties! A Political Play, features local talent drawn direct from the DC-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) area. Properties!  features a complete cast and crew who have generously given their time to come together to tell a story about our times, a story that everyone needs to hear. 

The performance will premiere January 4th and 5th night at The Performing Arts Factory in Frederick, Maryland. The entire performance will be professionally filmed. Tickets may be purchased in advance at here at Properties! A Political Play online ticket sales. 

This is a grassroots operation dependent on gifted time for each member of the project. This KickStarter aims to raise $3,000 to give back to the cast and crew who made this project happen. It is important to us that we support all those who participated in this project, your gift allows this to happen. 

So whether you can make the show not, there are many exciting ways to help fund this amazing project.  Check out our kickstarter rewards -- there's something cool for every level of support.

What is Properties about?

The Drunken Donkey, a local drinking establishment in Baltimore, struggles with being tagged a a ‘Democrat bar,’ during the election of 2016. The election brings a new owner and a change of name as the bar becomes "The Elevated Elephant." However, bar proprietorship is not new owner Neal Armistead's strong suit, as a series of misjudgments and miscues lead to another unexpected change.

  • Lori Titus (Meg - the bar's owner at the start)
  • Alex Prete (Neal - the new owner) 
  • Kwame Shaka Opare(Sherman - a homeless man, and Bennett - an HVAC guy)
  • Beau Cameron (Rory - a transgendered job-seeker)
  • Parker Webb (Ed - a man with no fixed address)
  • Karolina Bohn (Iris - a young woman searching for . . . something)
  • Cassidee Grunwald (Lynette - a factory worker)
  •  Alex Gordon (Melvin - a wannabe mobster)
  •  Charlie Dougherty (Ralph- a compulsive gambler)
  • Dan Lake (Milo - a liquor company rep)
  •  Mikayla Domingo (Marion - a social worker)
