Four years ago, Cathy and Bill Marrow happened upon a 100-year-old house for sale on King George Street in historic Annapolis. With its steep asphalt roof and multipaned narrow windows, the home reminded the couple of their many happy visits to the south of France and a lifestyle they found so appealing. Cathy Marrow, a 62-year-old interior designer and home renovator, sized up the Old World-style cottage with the critical eye of a seasoned professional. The interior was "dark as midnight," with worn wallpaper and chopped-up rooms.

Every now and then one of Baltimore's smaller theaters introduces local audiences to an off-Broadway gem that slipped under the radar of larger, more prominent theaters. Craig Lucas' The Dying Gaul is just this type of jewel, and Fell's Point Corner Theatre's production lets it gleam. Like Lucas' better known play, Prelude to a Kiss, The Dying Gaul deals with love and loss. But an equally strong theme is the lethal lure of fortune and fame, in this case, Hollywood. William Runnebaum plays a young writer named Robert, who has written a screenplay titled The Dying Gaul, based on his lover's death from AIDS.
