The film within the play is directed by Steve Yeager. Show times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, through Dec. 18. Tickets are $10. For more information, call (410) 276-7837.
@ Tammra Sigler has been a painter for more than 30 years. In that time her work has changed often, but Sigler has essentially been an introspective painter. As she says, "Personal symbols appear and reappear, always unconsciously, to create my own familiar language." Currently more than 35 of her works are on view in "Tammra Sigler: Retrospective" at the University of Maryland University College art gallery in College Park. It begins with her 1963 painting "Loreal Seated" and continues through the "Sculpture Garden" and "Shelter" series of the 1980s and RTC down to her most recent works. Through Dec. 18 at the University College Center of Adult Education, University Boulevard at Adelphi Road. For information, call (301) 985-7822.
