(World Premiere from the Big Ten Playwriting Initiative)
Directed by Joni Starr
The season opens with the journey of a new play to the stage. Part of the Big Ten New Plays Initiative, Baltimore by Kirsten Greenidge explores the implications of a racially-charged incident in a college dormitory. This thought-provoking piece builds on the Department of Theatre’s recent involvement in Project 60/50.
