“Ain’t a body yet that gave the undertaker a tip.” Flannery O’Connor has a deliciously twisted way with words. Why head to the box office and pay exorbitant amounts of money for a deceptively dark and twisted thrilling experience when you can slip on down to Station North in Charm City, slide into The Mercury Theatre and witness the inaugural production of a new company— Feral Woman— doing exactly the same thing without the highway robbery box office prices and the action just millimeters from your face?
With everything that’s mass producing itself on the theatre scene these days it’s an exciting and refreshing change of pace to see brand new works being workshopped in full as a creative indulgent experience! The E.M.P. Collective has exactly that happening with their current theatrical engagement, Cans N Drafts Presents: Short Play Series. Featuring eight brand new works that just six weeks ago didn’t exist, this showcase of Baltimore-based playwrights is pushing the envelope in a new direction.
