The always adventurous, sometimes rascally Rorschach Theatre ( performs in Casa del Pueblo Methodist Church, 1459 Columbia Rd. NW.

That rake "Kit Marlowe" (Oct. 28-Dec. 2) opens the company's season . David Grimm's play examining the life of playwright Christopher Marlowe and his sidelines as spy and reprobate will complement the Shakespeare Theatre's Marlowe double bill of "Tamburlaine" and "Edward II."

Thornton Wilder's examination of human history, "The Skin of Our Teeth" (Feb. 3-March 2, 2008), will get the Rorschach treatment next.

"Dream Sailors" (April 3-June 14, 2008), an original episodic drama by Co-Artistic Director Randy Baker, consists of four hour-long chapters, with one introduced every three weeks of the run. In the fable, four friends who have vivid dream lives must solve a real-life crisis by traveling deeper into their dreams.

In Jason Grote 's "This Storm Is What We Call Progress" (July 13-Aug. 10, 2008), a man is drawn into a world of Jewish mysticism. Co-Artistic Director Jenny McConnell Frederick will direct.
