Come see DC differently through the eyes of a fascinating local resident in this interview and improv exploration of life in DC. First we interview a special guest about their life, their vocation and passions, and what makes DC special to them. Then we improvise a fun and freewheeling montage of scenes inspired by our interview. Produced by Erick Acuña, People of the District has a rotating cast for each show.

Cast: Kristina Martinez, James Jelin, Christina Floriza, Neil Baron, Sophie de Bruijn, Erick Acuña
