Now in its tenth consecutive year in NYC, the Potomac Theatre Project welcomes two Off-Broadway plays for its 30th repertory season.

Performances began July 5; the season officially begins with the opening of Good July 12.

The revival of C.P. Taylor’s play, directed by PTP’s co-artistic director Jim Petosa asks the question “How were the Nazis made?” According to press notes, Good is “Set partly inside the mind of a ‘good’ man, Professor John Halder, Good watches a normal German slowly succumb to the rising madness, slipping the bonds of family and friendship.”

In rep with Good, a revival of Howard Barker’s No End of Blame: Scenes of Overcoming will play. Directed by PTP’s co-artistic director Richard Romagnoli, the work features cartoon projections by illustrator Gerald Scarfe (Pink Floyd’s The Wall). According to press notes, “Blame is a scathing commentary about the censorship of art. The play’s protagonist is the brilliant Hungarian political cartoonist Bela Veracek (loosely based on the celebrated German cartoonist Victor Weisz), who’s constantly at odds with the governments he lampoons, and the newspapers that admire his talent.”

Among the performers this season are Stephanie Janssen (A Delicate Balance and Death of a Salesman on Broadway, Crave with PTP), Valerie Leonard (An Ideal Husband on Broadway, The Europeans with PTP), Alex Draper (Scenes From An Execution and Pentecost with PTP) and David Barlow (Scenes From An Execution and Serious Money with PTP).

The season plays through August 5 at Atlantic Stage 2 (330 W 16th Street NYC). For tickets and information visit PTPNYC.org.
