MOTHER MAY I Opens Strand Theatre's 2012-13 Season Tonight, 9/20


The Strand Theater Co. presents the inaugural season conceived and developed by new artistic director Rain Pryor for 2012-13. It will feature six incredible shows, including one world and four Baltimore premieres, plus special events, performances, classes and more.

"My goal is to create theater that pushes us to The Edge with irreverent, poignant, emotional, psychological, and aesthetic pieces. We have a great opportunity to place Baltimore on the regional map of great places for interesting and fresh takes on theater," says Pryor.

Mother May I
by Dylan Brody
A World Premiere
Sept. 20 – Oct. 12, 2012

This Stanley Drama Award-winning "sad comedy" dives into the screamingly funny and raw-nerve-painful dynamic of a modern American family. Everybody keeps secrets from one another except for the narcissistic and deeply repressed mother who keeps secrets only from herself—while blithely revealing them to anyone who will listen. Sexuality, finances, and self-esteem are all fair game when the Grunmans get together. Thomas Wolfe was wrong; it’s not that you can’t go home again, it’s that it’s so hard not to. Brody’s work has been compared to that of Garrison Keillor, David Sedaris, and Woody Allen.

Directed by Rain Pryor and featuring Jessica Felice, Caroline C Kiebach, Valerie Lash, Jon Kevin Lazarus, and Larry Levinson. For tickets, click HERE.
