Laughs times three Theater

August 06, 1998|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Three one-act comedies, opening at the Spotlighters Theatre tomorrow, are the latest offerings in this summer's Baltimore Playwrights Festival.

Mark Scharf's "Like White on Rice," one of two plays by Scharf in this year's festival, is a 10-minute comedy written entirely in cliches. Paul Sambol's "One for the Road" is about a quirky fortune teller and an insurance underwriter who's facing downsizing. And Robert Leland Taylor's "Sex without Pliers" is a satire of detective fiction. Miriam Bazensky directs the first two playlets, and Bob Bardoff directs the third, with three cast members - Dan Bursi, Jerry Gietka and Cindy Spearman - taking on multiple roles.

Show times at the Spotlighters, 817 St. Paul St., are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Aug. 30. Tickets are $10. Call 410-752-1225.
