Puppets portray the patients in 'Room 5' at Theatre Project

"Room 5," a psychological thriller set in a mental hospital where all of the patients are portrayed by puppets, opens a five-day run at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., on Wednesday. Created by Stuffed Puppet Theatre of Amsterdam and performed by company founder Neville Tranter, "Room 5" continues the Theatre Project's participation in the three-year U.S./Netherlands Touring & Exchange Project, which brings Dutch companies to four American cities.

Show times are 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. (Sunday's show is at a handicapped-accessible site; call the number below for the location.) Tickets are $14, except Thursday, which is pay-what-you-can night. "Room 5" is recommended for adult audiences. For more information call (410) 752-8558.

@ Clothes make the man, it has been said. In this double portrait, "Martha Olson" by Judy Jashinsky, they also make the woman a man. Or do they? If you saw just the right-hand portrait, would you think the subject a man or a woman? That's one of the questions Jashinsky explores in the exhibit "Men and Women, Wood and Water" at Goucher College. It includes three series of Jashinsky's realist paintings and a group of seascapes on canvas. At Goucher's Rosenberg Gallery in the Kraushaar auditorium building, through April 22. For information call (410) 337-6154.

John Dorsey "Born Yesterday," Garson Kanin's comedy about influence-peddling in Washington, begins a five-weekend run at the Vagabond Players, 806 S. Broadway, on Friday. Director Steve Goldklang says of the 1946 script, "When you look at the play you think it's dated, but the two issues that it deals with are absolutely pertinent today: the issue of political corruption and, equally important, a woman's awakening to the fact that she can assert herself and be independent."

Performance times are 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sundays, through May 1. (There are no performances April 3.) Tickets are $9 and $10. For further information call (410) 563-9135.
