July 21

DO IRON FENCES MAKE GOOD NEIGHBORS?
Or resentful enemies? Should the gate that faces the local Arab village be locked shut, or should it remain open? Udi, who lost his brother in the War of Independence, fights for the gate to be closed. Yiftach, an aging peacenik, must do all he can to signal openness to his Palestinian cousins. And Amal, the caterer from the Arab village, just wants someone to open the gate so she can get home after a long day.
“The Gate,” written and performed by Robbie Gringras, is produced by Voices From a Changing Middle East at Fringe. Runs through July 24; W. Washington Theatre, 3222 M St. NW, Washington; $15; capitalfringe.org/events/the-gate.
