  Confection at Folger Theatre


Folger Theatre
201 East Capitol Street, SE Washington

Third Rail Projects' newest immersive experience, Confection, is a rollicking rumination on opulence, inequity, and teeny-tiny desserts. Using accounts of the extravagant banquets and sumptuous feasts held by the aristocracy of the late 17th-century as a springboard, Confection is a multi-sensory dance/theater performance that contemplates cultures of consumption and poses the questions: How much does sweetness cost, and what are we willing to devour to satisfy our appetites?

MD Theatre Guide - Highly Recommended

"...Still, with just 38 performances in the entire run, and a maximum of 50 audience members allowable per show, "Confection" is worth seeing while you can. Like a good meal, you will never experience anything exactly like it again."

DCTheatreScene - Recommended

"...The evening has a joyful, festive air as the audience, separated into groups of a dozen or less, are then led off to smaller rooms. Silently directed to our next location, we pass silver trays heaped with all-white, chalky confections and sprays of white flowers draped along walls of leather-spined books. A heavily-laden banquet table featuring a towering, ghostly-white croquembouche creates the eerie sense that Miss Havisham has only just stepped out for a smoke."
