The Kecks couldn't go without their fresh strawberry jam. "The kids suck it up like honey," their father, Steven, said while standing in the vast patch of strawberries at Baugher's Orchard outside Westminster. Steven, his wife Kristi, and their two boys just moved from Utah, where they had a strawberry patch. Until they get one going at their new Westminster home, picking at Baugher's will fill the void, they said. Priti Parikh of Finksburg has trekked to Baugher's each of the last six strawberry seasons.

In her set for Brian Friel's "Dancing at Lughnasa" at Washington's Arena Stage, designer Linda Buchanan has created an ideal physical metaphor for the tension underlying this highly poetic Tony Award-winning play.A cutaway section of the small Mundy family home -- where most of the action takes place -- occupies half of the stage. Above and around the house's jagged walls, tall grass boldly sprouts, as if attempting to reclaim the ground usurped by the tiny dwelling.And indeed, just as the Mundys' domesticity is threatened by the wild outdoors, so this Christian household is threatened by paganism -- specifically, the ecstatic Celtic harvest festival of Lughnasa and the African rituals admired by Father Jack Mundy, who has returned to Ireland after 25 years as a missionary.
