Playwright Caridad Svich at Single Carrot Theatre


Tropic of X

catch of the day fish (2)Baltimore gets plenty of recognition for its independent music scene and community of visual artists and small galleries. And the Maryland Film Festival and its programs keep the local independent film scene vibrant. But over the past few years, we’ve been struck by the tenacity with which the local theatre scene has taken root and grown tremendously. Single Carrot Theatre (named Best Local Theatre Company by the City Paper last year), has worked hard since its inception to bring the work of exciting contemporary playwrights to Baltimore—no mean feat when most professional theaters are only able to survive by producing the usual fare of Shakespeare, Rogers & Hammerstein, and the occasional Tennessee Williams. Case in point: this season’s The Tropic of X by OBIE award winner Caridad Svich, who will be present for talk-backs for this opening weekend.

Pub Labs: The Poe Project


I can’t get behind fusion cuisine.  It feels so artificial and indecisive.  Some things just aren’t meant to be combined.

Other things, however, became exponentially better when put together.  Eggs and bacon.  Theater and bars.  Peanut butter and chocolate. This Sunday evening, in conjunction with The Baltimore Performance Kitchen and Centerstage, Single Carrot Theatre will be performing The Poe Project at Liam Flynn’s Ale House.  Directed by the same talented Genevieve deMahy who brought us Hotel Cassiopeia last season, The Poe Project promises to be equally as compelling.  This interactive show will pull from all of Poe’s murky history and precocious prose, and if that isn’t incentive enough, it’s being supported by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of the “Big Read.”

Single Carrot’s “Drunk Enough to Say I Love You?” Opens Tonight at MICA


The ever-wonderful Single Carrot Theatre is kicking off their sixth season with another promising production tonight at 8pm at their temporary home at MICA’s  Favley Hall.  The show, “Drunk Enough to say I Love You?” will truly raise the question, “What does it mean to love America?”, following Guy and Sam as they navigate the tumultuous political love affair America has cultivated with the rest of the world, and its inevitable backlash.  Following each performance there will be a panel discussion on foreign policy and the role our country has played in defining the current global state of affairs.  As always with Single Carrot, I anticipate a wonderful show that really forces me to ask questions and seek answers.
