In a swan song to a WMATA train car, local feminist theatre company Pinky Swear Productions premieres Use All Available Doors at Dupont Underground with the support of CulturalDC from April 13 to May 6, 2018 (preview April 12).
Use All Available Doors follows a soon-to-be-decommissioned WMATA train car, a grieving operator re-evaluating her life’s path, and a revolving door of passengers as they travel the length of the Red Line from Shady Grove to Glenmont. A vignette occurs between each stop, highlighting the diverse nature of the Red Line’s path, including a parade, a sing-a-long, and unsolicited foot washing. The production will be performed on Dupont Underground’s real tracks and features seats made from WMATA-donated cushions from a scrapped 4000-series car.
To capture the community’s diverse backgrounds and experiences, Use All Available Doors will actively engage Red Line users by hosting pop-up events at various stations and encouraging community members to share their own WMATA stories.
