Special discount for readers of

Ford's Theatre's newest show begins this Friday. 

The Carpetbaggers Children was written by Horton Foote, who also wrote the Academy Award-winning screenplay for To Kill a Mockingbird.

The Carpetbaggers Children stars three actresses: Nancy Robinette, Holly Twyford and Kimberly Schraf.  Over the course of the play each of the actresses, who play sisters, tell their personal version of the family’s history: how they attempted to maintain their Texas farm which was acquired by their father after the Civil War.

But here's the deal - Penn Quarter Insider readers get a special discount if they actually live in Penn quarter. 

You get 20% off of tickets to The Carpetbaggers Children by simply using the promo code PENNQ.

Tickets are available here, or by calling 202-397-SEAT.

However, you must show proof once you get to the box office that you actually live in Penn Quarter.  According to Ford's Theatre, "the Penn Quarter neighborhood is defined as the area bordered by 15th Street Northwest and the Center Leg Freeway (Interstate 395) to the west and east, and between New York/Massachusetts Avenues and Pennsylvania Avenue to the north and south."

Enjoy the show!
