'Flow My Tears', The Policeman said'

February 22, 1996|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Philip K. Dick's science-fiction novels have been adapted into movies, including "Blade Runner," "Total Recall" and "Screamers." So, it makes sense that in staging "Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said," a play based on one of Dick's novels, Desire Productions has chosen a style artistic director Kirby Malone calls a "live movie."

Opening Wednesday at the Theatre Project, the drama -- adapted in 1985 by Linda Hartinian for New York's experimental theater company Mabou Mines -- focuses on a TV personality who finds himself in an alternate reality, where he has been stripped of his identity.

Show times at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., are 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays, through March 10. Tickets are $14. Call (410) 752-8558.
