    Group Sales

    An Ideal Educational Program For Your Group


    Group Sales -- Deep Discounts Available:

    The Fringe Festival offers group passes to bring your group to the same performance or allow your members to chose different performances. The box office for group passes opened on sale on May 17. Order your pass soon!


    There are discount rates for 4, 6, 10, 20 or 50 tickets. The more tickets, the larger the discount. Remember that all ticket holders must also purchase a Fringe button (these can be purchased online). The buttons are $5 if purchased before July 6, and $7 after. Single tickets are $17 (this does not include the button). If you purchase the ticket and button at the box office the total cost for ticket and button would be $24. If you have a group of at least 10 people and you purchase the buttons before July 6, each ticket (including button) cost is $17. You save 25+%.



    • Fringe Festival passes and buttons can be purchased online or at the box office, 1358 Florida Ave, NE Washington, DC 20002 starting on May 17, 2017.
    • Since tickets sell fast it is essential that your organization designate one person to obtain member commitments in advance and purchase your passes, tickets and buttons ASAP.
    • It’s What We Do does not manage ticket sales so your designated representative must deal directly with the Fringe Festival.

    Scheduling Options:

    • All come to the same performance and either stay for the post-performance discussion or go to one of the many nearby restaurants for a discussion and refreshments. This is the easiest option for your organization to manage.
    • Enable your members to select their performance and schedule a meeting soon after to discuss the play. If your group is at least 20, e-mail us at iwwdplay@gmail.com, and we may be able to provide a speaker for your meeting in the DC area. This process will be more complex to manage but it is available to you.

    Either way, one person from your organization will have to manage the process through the Fringe Festival online box office and should make your tickets are reserved promptly on June 19th to have the best chance of getting your first choice of performances.

    "an extraordinary work of theater"

    -- DC Metro Theater Arts



    -- MD Theatre Guide


    “'It’s What We Do,' gave me a disturbing, powerful, and insightful picture of the interactions between Israeli soldiers, Israeli settlers, and Palestinians, from the perspective of Israeli soldiers. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the complexity of the current environment."

    -- Mark Nadel, member, Temple Rodef Shalom in Falls Church


    "Many members of St. Mark’s Mid-East group saw the play at the Fringe in 2015. Some had already taken our “dual narrative” trip to Israel/Palestine and met with peace-makers on both sides. All were deeply moved by the authentic testimony of the soldiers and the scenes depicting their enforcement of the occupation. The play reveals daily realities rarely glimpsed by visitors, as well as the terrible toll on all involved."

    -- Peter Hawley, member, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Capitol Hill


    "Israeli soldiers testify to the daily brutality they are trained to inflict on Palestinian civilians. Witness what the Israeli Government would like to keep hidden from the world. Learn the truth about Israel's occupation. See the play!"

    -- Rosemarie M. Esber, author, "Under the Cover of War"
