The Deal

How to Write a New Book for the Bible

For playwright Bill Cain, author of the acclaimed Equivocation, his latest piece is intensely personal. How to Write a New Book for the Bible, now in its east coast premiere at Round House Theatre, is a powerful family portrait that chronicles the final months of his mother’s life. After his ailing but strong-willed mother becomes too frail to live alone, protagonist Bill moves home to care for her. Their reunion heals old wounds as they reexamine their family's history, opening a heartfelt, humorous new chapter in their relationship. The San Francisco Chronicle describes this play as “bracingly personal, smart, funny, affecting,” while the Washingtonian calls it "powerful and moving...a funny, poignant tribute to the quirks and affectionate moments that make each family unique."

Round House Theatre

When it was founded in 1970, the theatre company Street ’70 didn’t have a home, instead serving as a nomadic outreach program for schools and community spaces. It would be seven years before they’d find their own space in the Round House Theatre, which would eventually become the company’s moniker. Since those early days, the ensemble has produced more than 200 performances per year out of their home theater in Bethesda and a black box theater in Silver Springs. Round House Theatre also spreads the drama bug through classes, workshops, and not washing their hands after handling freshly penned manuscripts.
