ALWAYS FOLLOW THE CAMPSITE RULE!
THIS JULY, THE WASHINGTON ROGUES PRESENT ALEXANDRA PETRI’S SEXY NEW COMEDY AT THE ANACOSTIA PLAYHOUSE
Leave him better than you found him. Inspired by the famous relationship rule of thumb coined by sex columnist Dan Savage, The Campsite Rule charts the course of career woman Susan and college freshman Lincoln’s unlikely romance. While visiting her alma mater, Susan meets the unusually charming and inexperienced Lincoln at a house party and fireworks ensue. What starts as a one-night stand becomes more involved as Susan resolves to educate young Lincoln in the ways of romance. Alexandra Petri’s sexy new comedy asks, when dating someone much younger, how do you leave him better than you found him?
The first staged reading of The Campsite Rule played to a packed house at the Kennedy Center’s 2013 Page to Stage festival and “went over like gangbusters” according to the Washington City Paper. Now The Campsite Rule will receive it’s first full production at the stunning new Anacostia Playhouse, the recent winner of the Washington Post Leadership Award at the 2014 Helen Hayes. The Campsite Rule will be directed by company member Megan Behm, who recently appeared in the cast and choreographed fights for the Rogues production of In The Forest, She Grew Fangs. Megan’s recent directing credits include Comedy of Errors for Lean & Hungry Theater and, Minus You and Edward Cullen Ruined my Mother's Love Life for the Source Festival.
