WRAG Members: Please join us as guests of Craig Pascal & Victor Shargai, with the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers, for a night at the theater, featuring Ally Theatre Company’s world premiere of #poolparty, written by Helen Hayes Award-winning actress and playwright Jennifer Mendenhall and directed by Angelisa Gillyard. A new play inspired by the history of Mt. Rainier’s own Prince George’s Community Pool, #poolparty is about the history of swimming pools, the desegregation of a private swim club, and how the legacy of racism in the water continues to affect us all.
