During WIT’s Road Show at DC Arts Center, enjoy special productions like Day of Thrones (inspired by HBO’s Game of Thrones) and the romantic comedy Improv Actually. You’ll also experience WIT’s ensembles and the debuts of featured ensembles Lena Dunham, LIZARD GIRL, and Poetic Resistance.


Grandma’s Fire Blanket
Grandma’s Fire Blanket is a tight-knit handful of weirdos who perform the Dusty format.
Cast:Justin Carty, Joe Iannuzzi, Oona MacDougall, Sabrina Shahmir, Abel Vandegrift, Liz Williams
Day of Thrones
“Day of Thrones” finds the heroes of Westeros tackling problems that might be more relatable while still maintaining the drive to utterly destroy their foes.

For fans of Game of Thrones, as well as the uninitiated, this will be a taste of Iron Throne-level drama in our contemporary world.

How many baby dragons can you fit in a minivan, anyway? And do they need car seats?

Cast: Gina Cordero, Geoff Corey, Mary Lauran Hall, Michael Hendrix, Justine Hipsky, David Lapkoff, Ryan McClure, Jamal Newman, Kelsey Peters, and Ginnie Seger. Directed by Mary Lauran Hall and Michael Hendrix.
