Now entering its 18th year, Page-to-Stage was created to fill the Washington, D.C. theater community's need for an accessible space to perform and workshop new plays. During this festival, theater artists receive feedback and network with others, allowing them to refine their work and develop relationships that lead to later collaborations. The free performances reflect the dynamic make-up of all corners of the city, whether you are a newcomer or a veteran to theater.

Limited seating available on a first-come, first-served basis.
General Admission seating opens approximately 30 minutes prior to each event.
Please Note: There is no free parking when attending free events.
