Finding BOGED: your guide to Theater J at the Davis Arts Center

Theater J’s first play of the new year will be performed away from company’s venue on 16th Street. Boged (Traitor): An Enemy of the People, produced in conjunction with Georgetown University, opens tomorrow night, Saturday, February 12th at the Davis Arts Center on the Georgetown campus.

You won’t want to miss a minute of this important play. To help guide you to and through the  campus, we offer this special map (suitable, as they say, for printing), and a special phone number to call if you need assistance.

This advice was generously offered by Cynthia and Getu of the Office of Transportation Management. If this is your first trip to the Davis, they suggest you allow extra time to find onstreet parking on the busy Georgetown streets or to access the parking garage, located across campus.

Olive green lines are the walkways. There are stairs along the way. For directions as you walk, including how to avoid the stairs, call 202 687-4343

For those driving – nearby onstreet parking is a definite possibility, says Getu, although be aware of the parking signs. Most spots are metered, and the hours have just been extended to 10pm.

Some passengers may want to be dropped off at the main gate at 37th and O Streets – the walk to the Davis is a short one from there – and have the driver head south on 37th Street to Prospect Street, turn right, and from there, turn left to the on-campus Southwest Garage. Or you can enter the garage directly from Canal Road.

Garage parking is cash only. It’s a brisk 5 minute (or more) walk from the garage to the Davis Center. There are stairs or steep elevations along the pathway. To learn how to avoid them, call the friendly folks at Transportation at 202 687-4343.

Boged (Traitor): An Enemy of the People by Boaz Gaon and Nir Erez is part of Theater J’s Voices From a Changing Middle East Festival which runs January 12 – February 3, 2013. The play is an up to the minute update of Henrik Ibsen’s play of environmental whistle blowing, An Enemy of the People.  centers around a chemical leak in an Israeli industrial part which endangers the region’s water supply, a coverup and the ensuing family battle which escalates into “a political war with major environmental repercussions.”

– Note: there was an error in the first published version of this article which stated the Davis Arts Center is on the GWU campus. That was incorrect and we apologize. It is on the Georgetown campus. –

  1. We were there last night and lucky enough to park on 37th Street just a block south of the main campus entrance. However, as seems to be typical in DC, the meter signs need to be read carefully. Some weekday rules are until 4:00, while another meter in the same block is until 5::00. Weekends seem to run to 10:00. Be sure to bring a flashlight to read BOTH sides of the meter. Parking on campus is about $12.00.

    The play portrays complex relationships within a family and a community.The leads are superb actors and the environmental issues could just as well apply at American communities which rely on a major employer — such as the coal mines in West Virginia.
