"Queer Cafe: An Evening of New Theatre," opens tonight at the Theatre Project. An anthology of six short gay and lesbian plays, the production is presented in conjunction with the local Gay Pride Festival.
Produced by the newly formed local PussyCat Company and directed by Susan Lev Tairstein, the six playlets range from Eric C. Peterson's "Burnt Lips," about a gay couple coming out and contemplating parenthood, to "Overanalysis," which deals with bittersweet reflections on the conclusions of relationships and was written by Baltimore playwright Gabriel Shanks. After the June 13 performance, Center Stage resident dramaturg James Magruder will lead a discussion with all the playwrights, who hail from Athens, Ga.; Lawrence, Kan.; and Cleveland, as well as the Baltimore-Washington area.
Show times at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., are 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays, through June 15. Tickets are $14, including a $2 donation to the Baltimore Pride Committee of the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore. (There is no additional charge for the June 13 discussion.) Call 410-752-8558.
