Fourplay: A Night of One Act Plays with The Coil Project

Plays written by: Anindya De, Emily Mullin, and Erica Smith
Directed by: Anindya De, Rebecca Fischler, Erik Harrison, and Erica Smith
Where: Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, 545 7th St., SE, Washington, DC 20003
When: April 24-April 25

I. Those Are Your Only Options
II. 2-for-1
III. Speak
IV. #sexts (a tease)

Love is weird. We’ve all been there. Awkwardly meeting a significant other’s ex. Splitting a bottle of wine with the guy you loved who broke your heart. Getting caught up in an office romance. Sharing your relationship woes with a best friend.

And of course a revolver, ‘90s sit-com references, a mysterious disease and a Welsh corgi named Elinor Dashwood. Oh… oh wait, that’s not what your last date looked like? Oh… no, no me neither. Definitely not.

On April 24 and 25, The Coil Project will be presenting Fourplay, four short plays on love, romance and… whatever happened between you and that girl who is in your cell phone as “Megan from Friday night.” Shows are at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) at 8PM April 24, and at 6PM and 8PM on April 25. Join us after the 8PM shows for a celebration with cast and crew. Coming to our 6PM show on the 25th? The party starts early with a pre-show reception at 5PM in CHAW. It’ll be more fun than that guy you met on Tinder. Heck, take him too.

And we’ll be presenting a tease from our Summer 2015 Capital Fringe show!

Tickets at http://thecoilproject.org for $15

Neighbor's extremely huge tree dangerously hangs over my home

Any suggestions for how to deal with the Adult Children of a deceased neighbor who inherited the home that has a huge oak tree (over 100 years old) with very heavy limbs that hang over my house. No one lives in the home since the mom died almost 2 years ago. The limbs sound like boulders when they drop on our roof during high winds and storms. We have notified the heirs via certified letter and numerous emails and phone calls of damages already caused by the tree, and the risk of it falling on our home. Over the years, the tree roots have been growing under my house causing damages to pipes that we had to replace, in addition to the cost of a new roof and gutters, and the cost of lawn care services resulting from the fallen leaves and tree limbs. Their response is that they are trying to come up with a payment plan to have work done on the house so they can rent it out. It has been nearly 2 years and still no action. We also offered to pay part of the cost for removing the tree, still no action.
We really didn’t want to take them to court because we wanted to settle it amicably but feel we have no choice. Does anyone know of case law that can be used and what kind of attorney would handle this case. Other suggestions are also welcomed.

Seeking advice on basement underpinning

We live in a densely populated area in a small apartment that is good enough to accommodate three people. We have plans to expand our living space but we don’t have the required amount of land to do so. It is then that we came across something termed basement underpinning. I did a few searches here and there but am still not cent percent sure about the feasibility of such an activity. I did also read regarding the obstacles associated with such a work. Can someone enlighten me as to how things are done. Also it would be extremely helpful to know the cost associated with it since we want make sure that it fits our budget. Would consulting firms like Doctor Rooter ( http://www.doctorrooter.ca/ ) in Toronto be helpful? Please do help out as quickly as possible because we are planning to wrap things up before August at the very least. Thank you.

Room under $800 for June or July?

I’m haunting Craigslist but thought I’d post here too just in case. I’m looking for a room in a group house (or at least a friendly roommate or two) anytime between June 1 and July 1. $800/month preferred budget, but could higher depending on how much utilities run.

I’m a respectful, friendly, 25 year old woman who will be starting grad school this fall. Hoping to move before then to beat the student rush (although I’m not beating the intern rush, clearly). Looking for something long term as I’ll be in DC at least two years. Would prefer to be within 30 minutes biking distance to Georgetown (or on Capitol Hill so I can grab the bus at the law school) and walking distance from a metro or lots of reliable bus lines. Desperately trying to avoid Virginia if possible.

If you have any leads or are looking I’d appreciate any replies! Thanks!

Help! DC Lost my car

UPDATE: Found it after some more searching. It was towed to U St without being reported.

I forgot to move my car for street cleaning on Monday and it was towed to the 2300 block of 16th St NW (right by Meridian Hill Park). Since 16th street has no parking during rush hour, it received a ticket Tuesday morning, but had no indication of being towed again. Wednesday (today), I went to go check on my car, saw it was gone, and figured it was a courtesy tow. I called the Dept of Public Works inquiring about my car location, but the only record they have is of it being moved from Ontario Rd to 16th St and they don’t have it in a lot. I’ve called about four times today and had them transfer me around to talk to a few people, but no one can seem to find it.

I’ve heard the horror stories of DC moving a car and not recording its location, so I think it’s possible it may have been towed again (especially since it was in moved to a rush hour street). The only other thing I can do at this point is report it stolen, and I’d like to avoid that if my car’s sitting perfectly safe on a street somewhere.

ISO: Someone to fix/re-wire a lamp

Does anyone know of an electrician, appliance repair, or other that would be able to fix/rewire a lamp? It’s a cheap lamp from IKEA so I don’t want to spend $100’s on fixing it but I like the design enough to consider repairing it before I just replace it.

I’ve sent a couple of messages out on Angie’s list and so far no one has replied indicating they can do it.

What to do about neighbor’s tree?

A tree on our neighbor’s property is dangerously hovering over our roof, and we’re not sure what to do about it. The house has been converted into condos so we don’t know the owner and knocking on the door won’t really work. Should we just take care of it ourselves? Is there any way to force them to take action?

Related, does anyone have recommendations for a good tree removal service? We’re in the Brookland/Langdon area.
