Anyways, more good theatre this week, a few festivals, and Halloween fun is already starting up.

IMmortal: A Collection of Plays
September 23 – October 3
915 St Paul St, Baltimore
Every play in this collection features a unique exploration of immortality! Each performance night, an audience of 10 will gather at the back gate of Inadequate Lighting. A guide will bring the audience through the space to experience each play individually. There will be two sets of performances per night. The first set of plays begins at 6:30 pm and the second set begins at 8:00 pm. We have curated each performance night, meaning we are not showing all of these plays on the same night! We have separated them into a group of three and a group of four.

Clowntime
September 30 – October 3
Theatre Project
Imagine a society where money, power, and sex appeal can’t help you get ahead in life. The only way up the social ladder is…Your sense of humor. The main character of Clowntime is born without a single funny bone in his body. Yet somehow he manages to overcome his dismal prospects to work for the president of the United States, lead a revolution, and save the world from destruction. Written and performed by John Feffer and directed by Yury Urnov, Clowntime introduces you to an alternative universe that is just one joke away from ours. George Orwell warned of a future when a boot stamps on a human face—forever. Inspired by Comedy Central’s Daily Show, the rise of comedian-leaders like Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky, and the cruel buffoonery of Donald Trump and Boris Johnson, Clowntime offers an even more terrifying vision of the future: a cream pie striking a human face forever.

Wit
October 1 – October 24
Fells Point Corner Theatre
Margaret Edson’s powerfully imagined Pulitzer Prize–winning play examines what makes life worth living through her exploration of one of existence’s unifying experiences—mortality—while she also probes the vital importance of human relationships. What we as her audience take away from this remarkable drama is a keener sense that, while death is real and unavoidable, our lives are ours to cherish or throw away—a lesson that can be both uplifting and redemptive. As the playwright herself puts it, “The play is not about doctors or even about cancer. It’s about kindness, but it shows arrogance. It’s about compassion, but it shows insensitivity.”
