The drama of gay and lesbian life

June 04, 1998|By J. Wynn Rousuck

"Queer Cafe 2," a follow-up to last season's evening of short gay and lesbian plays, opens tonight at the Theatre Project. This year's five offerings, produced by the PussyCat Theatre Company, are all world premieres.

"Penelope and the Sterile Field," by Center Stage resident dramaturg James Magruder, is about the barriers facing a gay man searching for the ideal mate. "The Mirror of Love," by Alan Moore, is a monologue tracing homosexuality throughout history. Pretzels and Longing," by Linda Eisenstein, focuses on the lesbian dating scene. "Queer Fruit," by Sara Hardy, is about lesbian love and history. And "Biop-see," by Tatiana de la Tierra, is a solo piece exploring the healing process. Obie Award winner David Drake, a former Marylander, is the guest director of "The Mirror of Love."

The other four pieces are directed by Susan Lev, artistic director of PussyCat.

Show times at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., are 8 p.m. tonight through Sunday and June 10-14. Tickets are $14. Tonight's performance includes a post-show discussion, at no extra charge. Call 410-752-8558.
