“Some people find it hard to sit in a café. Alone. With just their thoughts. Don’t worry, we’re going to keep you company this next while.”

One Moment Now is a brand new table-top audio-experience commissioned by Bewley’s Café Theatre, now making its North American premiere with Solas Nua. Through headphones, you’ll hear fragments of a story - about memory, about grandsons and grandmothers, about coffee shops and hospital visits - and be invited to participate as it plays out on the table in front of you.

Solas Nua’s Artistic Director of Theatre Rex Daugherty shares, “I’ve been watching Murmuration for a few years now and have admired their singular approach to theatre making. They create intimate, private experiences that occur in public spaces, and it has been capturing the imagination of audiences, as well as forging new grounds for where theatre takes place. There’s a special magic when immersed in this setting, and I’m eager to share it with DC audiences.” 

This highly inventive approach to theatre making, combined with years of experience producing in non-traditional spaces shows why Washington City Paper has acknowledged Solas Nua as “Washington’s finest purveyor of site-specific theatre.” 

Solas Nua is thrilled to be back at Eaton DC, which previously hosted their critically acclaimed, sold out run of The Smuggler. Starring Rex Daugherty in this solo-performance, the show was picked by The New York Times as one of the best productions of 2019. Eaton DC was named by Time Magazine as one of the top 100 Places to Visit on Earth. One Moment Now will be hosted inside of Eaton’s resident coffee shop, Baker’s Daughter, which is a boutique café from 101 Hospitality, the team behind Gravitas and Michele’s. With three locations in Washington, D.C., the all-day cafe offers breakfast, coffee, baked goods and, prepared foods. Chef Matt Baker owns and operates Gravitas, a New American fine dining establishment in Washington D.C.’s Ivy City neighborhood; Baker’s Daughter, a café and market with multiple locations in the Nation’s Capital; and Michele's, a modern American restaurant reflecting the global flavors of his culinary upbringing in Houston and New Orleans. Gravitas received one star in the 2020 and 2021 Washington, D.C. MICHELIN Guides.
