By Kirsten Greenidge
(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.

Baltimore is the second work of a New Play Initiative established by the Big Ten Theatre Consortium. This collaboration among theatre departments will commission, produce, and publicize a series of new plays by female playwrights, with a secondary goal of creating strong female roles.

Tickets are available from the Wharton Center Box Office, 1.800.WHARTON, whartoncenter.com

The ticket office for BALTIMORE will close 5 minutes after the posted start time as late seating beyond that point will disrupt the performers and fellow audience members.
