- 2nd Place: Eight (8) tickets to the Strange Interlude by Eugene O’Neill at the Shakespeare Theatre Company.
Shakespeare Theatre Company Artistic Director Michael Kahn directs Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning, yet controversial, drama about love and deception. Heartbroken over her adored fiancé’s death, Nina engages in a series of sordid affairs before marrying a man she does not love. Months later, pregnant with her husband’s child, she learns a horrifying secret about his family, setting off a dramatic and emotional chain of events that spans two decades. One of O’Neill’s early plays, Strange Interlude was hailed as revolutionary, shocked 1928 audiences–and became a smash hit. Michael Kahn’s production of another O’Neill classic, Mourning Becomes Electra, was called a “raw force” by The Washington Post.
- 3rd Place: Eight (8) tickets to the Newseum.
With a mission of educating the public about the value of a free press in a free society, the Newseum offers visitors an experience that blends five centuries of news history with up-to-the-second technology and hands-on exhibits.
