This green plot shall be their stage! And by this, tis meant
the Hodson Outdoor Theatre of Hood College, unless of course it rains, and then
there’s an indoor option, but speak not, yet mortals, of tempests— that’s

Torn Kid at Baltimore Asian Pasifika Arts Collective & Cohesion Theatre

Something
I wasn’t prepared for when I walked into the theater to see Tornkid was
that I would slowly become a part of the play.

Top Girls at Maryland Ensemble Theatre

If you could sit down to dinner, or better yet a dinner party, with any five influential women in history, who would you choose? Well-behaved women seldom make history, as Laurel Thatcher Ulrich says. Wouldn’t you want to choose radical women, the movers and shakers of their time? Those that simply refused to live the life of a lady and broke through the gender barrier that so often held them in place, wouldn’t those be your choice invitees to a dinner party in a completely absurdist and fictitious dream sequence?
