Wedding guest

January 29, 1998|By J. Wynn Rousuck

David Mills' one-man show, "The Wedding Banned," was inspired "by my real-life experiences of going to straight weddings of old friends and feeling somehow out of place, alienated and yet deeply envious," according to the San Francisco-based gay performance artist. In the show, which is receiving its East Coast premiere at the Theatre Project, Mills plays characters ranging from his straight friend Sharon, on the eve of her wedding, to Meredith Baxter-Birney and Lee Majors in a made-for-TV movie.

At 4: 30 p.m. Sunday, Mills will offer a workshop called "Socio-Pop Performance" in which participants will learn how to turn their personal narratives into what he describes as a "pop-media soap opera." The workshop fee ranges from $10 to $20, or $8 with a ticket stub from the show.

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