Playwrights Festival

August 08, 1996|By J. Wynn Rousuck

The final entries in this year's Baltimore Playwrights Festival open this weekend, beginning tonight with "Real Time" at Fell's Point Corner Theatre. Written by Mimi Teahan, an assistant public defender in Baltimore, "Real Time" is about a social worker and jail guard who struggle to restrain their anger at a prisoner who has accused the social worker of sexual assault.

Opening tomorrow at the Spotlighters is a double bill of one-act plays. "Chin Music," by festival veteran Joe Dennison, is a tragi-comedy about the baseball strike. "Saturday Morning Television," by Joe Thompson, is a farce about a couple whose Saturday is disrupted by a television crew attempting to film a day-in-the-life documentary.

Show times for "Real Time" at Fell's Point Corner, 251 S. Ann St., are 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 7 p.m. Sundays, through Aug. 25. Tickets are $10; $9 for seniors and students. The theater cautions that "Real Time" is for mature audiences. Call (410) 276-7837.
