The Raid at Anacostia Playhouse


Feb. 8 to March 18. Idris Goodwin’s The Raid is a fantasy debate between two American icons: White abolitionist John Brown and Black abolitionist and social reformer Frederick Douglass. On the eve of Brown’s raid on the federal armory in Harpers Ferry, these men argue the merits of violence and pacifism, order and chaos and possibility of a nation free of the scourge of slavery.
