About the Performances
Baltimore │ February 2021
By Kirsten Greenidge
Directed by A. Lorraine Robinson
Performance recorded on Zoom
Streamed on Vimeo
Release times, TBA
When a racially charged incident divides her first-year students, reluctant resident advisor Shelby finds herself in the middle of a conversation she does not want to have. As pressure to address the controversy mounts from residents, the new dean, and even her best friend, Shelby must decide if she will enter the fray or watch her community come apart at the seams. Sharp, funny, and searing, BALTIMORE is a timely drama about racism on college campuses.
Devised Theater Project, TBA │ April 2021
Collaboratively written, original student work
Conceived and supervised by Amy Steiger
Emerging from professor Amy Steiger’s fall 2020 class on Devising Community-Based Theater and built from interviews with members of the SMCM community, this collaboratively devised theater piece, written by students under the supervision of professor Steiger, explores subjects on race, gender, healing, and joy. As yet titled, the project is currently scheduled to be performed virtually; if circumstances change with the COVID-19 pandemic and we can do so safely, we shall perform the show in person in April. Stay tuned for updates.
To reserve tickets, contact the Theater Box Office at (240) 895-4243 (ext. 4243), or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since our season may be completely virtual during spring 2021, protocols for requesting Zoom invitations to online performances or for receiving a Vimeo password to stream performances will be published for each event as its opening approaches. Performances of “Baltimore” will stream virtually; performances of the devised theater project may be live, depending on the circumstances mid-April. Please check back periodically for updates to this page or look for announcements posted to the TFMS Facebook page or sent by email.
There is no charge for attending a virtual performance.
