Plays in the park

Over the past three decades, Baltimorean Wil Love has acted in more than 130 plays and directed numerous others at Totem Pole Playhouse, the summer theater in Pennsylvania's Caledonia State Park. Sometimes he wears both hats at the same time. This week is the perfect example.

By night, Love stars in Jeanne and Sam Bobrick's Weekend Comedy as a staid middle-aged husband attempting to get some peace and quiet in a cabin in the Catskills. By day, he is directing rehearsals of Totem Pole's next show, Lucille Fletcher's 1972 thriller, Night Watch, which opens Tuesday and runs through July 18. Night Watch, written by the author of Sorry, Wrong Number, begins when a woman in a Manhattan townhouse sees a body in a neighboring building. Elizabeth Roby and Robert Boardman star.

Here's the remainder of the Totem Pole lineup: Father of the Bride, by Caroline Francke (July 20-Aug. 1); Crimes of the Heart, by Beth Henley (Aug. 3-15); and Tintypes, conceived by Mary Kyte with Mel Marvin and Gary Pearle (Aug. 17-29).

Totem Pole is at 9555 Golf Course Road, Caledonia State Park, Fayetteville, Pa., 15 miles west of Gettysburg. Show times are 8 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays, with matinees at 2:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $23-$30 (except Tintypes, which is an additional $2 per ticket).
