Playwrights Festival presents sixth play by Towson lawyer

In the 13-year history of the Baltimore Playwrights Festival, no playwright has had more scripts produced than Robert R. Bowie Jr., a Towson lawyer whose sixth festival production, "Between the Lines," opens Friday at Fell's Point Corner Theatre, 251 S. Ann St.

Bowie's new play focuses on a husband and wife, beginning in the present, flashing back to their days at a progressive Baltimore high school and examining their relationship against the backdrop of their studies of the Civil War. The production is directed by Richard Jackson, who also staged two of Bowie's previous festival entries. Show times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Sundays, and 7 p.m. Sundays through Aug. 28. Tickets are $10 general admission; $9 for students and seniors. For more information,call (410) 276-7837.

@ Stop by Steven Scott's current show at his gallery both for the show itself and to see a preview of coming events this season. "Summer Skies," running through Aug. 27, contains landscapes featuring sky as a major element, by artists including Robert Andriulli, David Hopkins, Michael H. Lewis and Joseph Sweeney, the painter of "Two Maples" pictured here. Another of the show's artists is Baltimore's Raoul Middleman, who will be having two one-man shows here this fall: one of recent landscapes at Scott in September and one of narrative paintings at Maryland Art Place in December. Tom Miller, Baltimore's creator of wildly wonderful painted furniture, also has a few pieces at Scott now. He'll be having two shows in February, one at the Baltimore Museum of Art and one at Maryland Art Place. For information on "Summer Skies" at Steven Scott Gallery, 515 N. Charles St., call (410)752-6218.
