Ten actors. Ten plays. Ten minutes. One stage. It’s happening right now in a theatre near you— the Fells Point Corner Theatre, to be exact. Appearing as a new revision to their annual tradition of a 10-minute play festival, this year four directors take ten actors across the course of ten different ten-minute one-act plays. Polished, poignant, and perfectly humorous, this bundle of shorts is perfectly palatable for those who prefer their theatre in quippy clips and devourable morsels.
The lost art of communication speaks volumes about the devolution of our existence as human beings. Most of us don’t know our neighbors names or what they do for a living, because who borrows a cup of sugar from the neighbors anymore? Who has time to bake anyway? Fells Point Corner Theatre is baking up a world of poignant drama and dark humor, making the communicative connections that our modern society lacks with the Baltimore premier of Lisa D’Amour’s Detroit.
Telling the truth is an expensive hobby. The costs are steep, the prices are high, and in the end the results can be catastrophic. In this riveting and politically charged Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by Jon Robin Baitz, Fells Point Corner Theatre showcases an extraordinarily talented cast under exceptional direction with their production of Other Desert Cities. Directed by Michael Byrne Zemarel, this intense familial story focuses on opposing political views across the parental and child generations with a shocking family secret that can destroy the foundation upon which such a life was built.
