Truth, justice, doing the right thing. Pick 2.
Ellipsis Theatre Company presents Kenneth Lonergan's Lobby Hero for two more weekends in 35below. Directed by Devyn Ray Villarreal, who also stars with this "full-throttle" cast (Daniel Henry, Eugene Jones, Badi Mirheli), this thought-provoking drama dares to explore “Is it ok to lie, and to compromise your moral principles, if it means protecting your family and friends, keeping your job, and avoiding the scorn of your colleagues? Or should the truth be told, no matter what the personal cost?” (DC Metro Theatre Arts)
When a murder investigation brings together a pair of security guards, a cop, and his rookie to the lobby of a Manhattan apartment complex, loyalties and convictions will be pushed to the limit. Sometimes between truth, justice, and doing the right thing, you can only pick two.
