The Double Nickels Theatre Company was established as a reminiscence theatre to celebrate the lives of seniors while they can still hear their applause. It is through gathering these stories from the elders that we are able to research, dramatize, record and preserve the rich culture and history that is to be found in our communities.
The manifestation of this rich heritage of American culture is exemplified by the Front Porch or front steps and stoops that graced most American homes. The Front Porch was a place of cultural exchange between neighbors. Our mobile porch was created to take “front porch culture” and the nostalgic feeling of community comradery out into the neighborhoods of D.C. and beyond! The Mobile Porch is currently on tour for the 2017-2018 season!
