Photo Flash: First Look at THE THINGS WE DO... One-Act Program at Baltimore Playwrights Festival

The Baltimore Playwrights Festival continues its 31st Season with the August 10th opening of "The Things We Do...an evening of one act plays" at The Audrey Herman Spotlighters Theatre, 817 Saint Paul Street, Baltimore, Md. Featured will be Protest, by Adam Meyer, A Good Brain is Hard to Find, by Rebecca Wyrick, and Replay, by Mark Scharf, all directed by Lynn Morton. Get a first look at the plays in the photos below!

Protest, by Adam Meyer, asks the question, "What if someone organizes a protest and no one shows up?" That’s the dilemma faced by Lizzie, who shows up to speak out against something called “flerbing,” and finds that the only other protester is a musician namEd Tyler. But the more Lizzie opens up to him, the more she finds herself realizing that she may not be as committed to the cause as she’d like to think.

In A Good Brain is Hard to Find, by Rebecca Wyrick, child genius Hannah West’s life is turned upside down when a stranger comes to town, but is he really a stranger? With a totalitarian government hot on her trail, Hannah tries to unravel the secrets of his criminal past… and must decide how far she will go for love.

Every night, at 4:30 a.m., Josh awakens to find Leann silently watching and waiting for another chance to replay how a promising relationship ended stillborn in pride, misunderstanding and miscommunication. As the play unfolds, we come to question if Leann’s visits are real or if they are only replaying in Josh’s head. Replay, by Mark Scharf, is about the journey from regret and remorse to redemption in our shared struggle to connect to another human being before it’s too late.

There will be a post-show reception with director, playwrights and cast following the opening night performance on Friday, August 10th, and a talk-back on Sunday, August 19th, with director, playwrights and cast immediately following the matinee. For tickets, scheduling and more information about the program, visit www.spotlighters.org.

The Baltimore Playwrights Festival has presented 273 scripts by 165 playwrights, produced by 25 different companies, over the past 30 years. Our mission is to provide an environment that nurtures the talents of Maryland and DC playwrights through public readings, discussions, critiques and workshopping of their new plays. Our summer season is devoted to the presentation of these newly developed works in cooperation with local area theaters and production companies.
