COMING UP

In its busiest weekend of the summer, the Baltimore Playwrights Festival opens a full-length drama and two one-acts tomorrow. At the Mobtown Theater (Meadow Mill, 3600 Clipper Mill Road), Invisible Theatre Company will present James Yamakawa's The Picture Walls, about a woman coping with her mother's death in the World Trade Center on 9/11. And the Audrey Herman Spotlighters Theatre (817 St. Paul St.) will present a double bill of Joe Dennison's My Play About My Wife, in which a man explores various "what if" scenarios, and Eton F. Churchill's The Eyes Have It, about an artist and his blind model. Meanwhile, two other festival shows continue - Kathleen Barber's A Different Kind of Love, which runs through Sunday at the Vagabond Players (806 S. Broadway), and Rosemary Frisino Toohey's Woman on the Edge, which runs through Aug. 15 at the Chesapeake Arts Center (194 Hammonds Lane, Brooklyn Park). Show times vary. Tickets cost $10-$15. For general festival information, call 410-276-2153 or visit www.baltplayfest.org. - J. Wynn Rousuck
