Anacostia Playhouse

2020 Shannon Place SE Washington, DC 20020

Theater Alliance is the company in residence at the Anacostia Playhouse and as such the majority of performances will be held at the Anacostia Playhouse, though in some cases performances will be held at other venues such as the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop and Atlas Performing Arts Center.

The Anacostia Playhouse is located at the heart of Historic Anacostia, one block from the corner of MLK Jr. Avenue & Good Hope Road SE. It is easily accessible via the 11th Street Bridge near the Navy Yard, the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge (via S. Capitol Street) near Nationals Park, and the Anacostia Freeway (295) via the MLK Jr. Avenue SE exit.
