Captain PhD + After Pie + Commonwealth: The Lottery

Harold Night is WIT's weekly homage to the world-famous longform improv format: the Harold. It all starts with an audience suggestion. From there, WIT’s four Harold teams create unique worlds full of vibrant characters right before your eyes.

9:00 PM

Harold Night is always free, although we appreciate your donation to help support live theater in the District.

In lieu of a jam, this week will feature The Lottery with Commonwealth:

​The Lottery features six Commonwealth players and four student players chosen at random at the top of the show. Eligible students are currently enrolled in a WIT class, or were enrolled in Fall 2017 or Winter 2018, and are not currently performing in a WIT ensemble, Harold team, or project show. Students enter the lottery upon arrival to the show (please arrive by 8:50 pm). Commonwealth will randomly select the student players at the top of the show and then invite them backstage to warm up and prepare for a montage performance.

General information:

  • No advance reservations are required, but reserving a seat will give you priority access. Please arrive at least ten minutes early as seats are first-come, first-served.

  • Please communicate any accessibility issues to
