Paul Mullin's 'Tuesday'

THEATER

March 19, 1998|By Jarrett Graver

Playwright Paul Mullin, a graduate of Dulaney High School, returns to his hometown tonight, as his latest play has its Baltimore premiere at the Axis Theater. "Tuesday" is the curious tale of Audie McCall, a man who suffers from an unusual affliction, one that causes him to forget everything he knows about himself and the world around him whenever he falls asleep. The play spans a single day in the life of the hapless Audie, a day in which he will be forced to confront his darkest secrets and the events surrounding his loss of memory.

After graduating from Dulaney High School, Mullin won an acting scholarship at the University of Maryland and wrote his first play "Philosophes," which received a staged reading at the 1987 New York Young Playwrights Festival. He subsequently moved to New York and co-founded A Voice in the Well ensemble, which staged his play "Ellison and Eden" as its premiere production. Mullin later wrote and starred in the independent film "Hitting the Ground," a Gold Award winner in its category at the 1996 Houston WorldFest. Mullin has also done some writing for television, recently completing work on a series for PBS called "Treasures of the World."

"Tuesday" is being produced today through April 11 at Axis Theatre, 3600 Clipper Mill Road. Show times are 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday; 2 p.m. March 29 and April 5. Tickets are $10- $14. $18 opening night, including post-show reception. For more information, call 410-243-5237.
