Friends with benefits annual fling

Join Studio's Friends With Benefits for our favorite party of the year!

Join us for our last big soirée of the season!

6:30PM: Pre-Show Happy Hour
8:00PM: Performance of Every Brilliant Thing
After Party: Drinks & Dessert

Friends With Benefits members get in free at our annual Fling! We're holding the party on our own turf this year, right here at Studio. We'll have drinks, plenty of nosh, and a preview discussion about Showroom, this summer's special cabaret-style series. Then we'll convene in the Milton Theatre for a performance of the first Showroom production, Every Brilliant Thing, written by Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahoe, and featuring Alexander Strain. But the fun doesn't stop there. Join us after the show for drinks and dessert!

Not a FWB Member? We've got you covered. For just $60, you can join us for the whole evening (pre-show, performance, and after-party) using the Promo Code FWBFLING.

Could you name a hundred things that make life wonderful? A thousand? How about a million? When he was 7, a boy’s mother attempted suicide. In response, he started a list of things to live for. As he grows up, the list takes on a life of its own. From “Ice Cream” (#1 on the list) to “the Alphabet” (#999,997), Every Brilliant Thing shines a hilarious and compassionate light on dark corners of the human condition. Written by Studio Cabinet member Duncan MacMillan (1984, Lungs), and coming from a sold-out run last year, Studio brings Olney Theatre Center’s production to DC for SHOWROOM. A play about depression, resilience, and the lengths we will go to for those we love—told in collaboration with the audience.
