  JQA at Arena Stage


Arena Stage
1101 Sixth Street, SW Washington

This unique, highly-theatrical play by award-winning playwright Aaron Posner (Stupid F**king Bird) imagines key confrontations between JQA and some of America's most dynamic figures: George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, his own father, John Adams and more. At once provocative, haunting and hilarious, this power play challenges the way we think of our country, our government and ourselves.

"...Be it as playwright or director, when Aaron Posner is at the helm, the synapses prepare for a certain kind of firing: there will be wit, intelligence, and a brand of subversive warmth even a cynic can love. Unfortunately, in JQA, Posner, both writing and directing, delivers no such sparks, and one can only wonder why. Is the auteur simply too upset with America to think straight?"

"...The four-member JQA cast is terrific. Rather than becoming bogged down into the dialogue or becoming ghosts on stage, each gives off distinct personalities with sparks of energy. The four are Jaqueline Correa, Eric Hissom, Phyllis Kay and Joshua David Robinson."
