The Chesapeake Arts Center continues its tradition of presenting plays that are part of the annual Baltimore Playwrights Festival, now in its 27th year of showcasing local writing talent. For the second consecutive year, CAC is offering a work by Mark Scharf, one of this area's foremost playwrights with over 40 plays produced and a former three-term chairman of the festival. Keeping Faith is his first attempt at writing a full-length comedy, an endeavor he succeeds in by creating overly protective, anger-driven parents bungling an attempt to abduct their 18-year-old daughter on the eve of her wedding to a man more than twice her age. Scharf has expert assistance from CAC veteran comedy director C.J. Crowe and her four-person cast, each skilled at projecting human frailties to coax our chuckles of recognition.

The Gophers' senior captain helped her team to its first state title for coach Juanita Murdock-Milani. The Gophers defeated Oxon Hill, 16-14, 15-9, 15-6."I don't know if it was nerves, or what," said Scharf, trying to explain her team's first-game rally from a 13-2 deficit.

Playwright Mark Scharf has created a work as classic as its setting in his 26th annual Baltimore Playwrights Festival offering, Last Night at the Owl Bar, which continues through Sunday at the Chesapeake Arts Center Studio Theatre. Scharf, who has 40 plays under his belt, again shows his gift for creating a uniquely appropriate and welcoming environment, natural and clever dialogue and contemporary characters with familiar human frailties - companions worth spending two hours with.

The set of the latest play staged at the Chesapeake Arts Center might look vaguely familiar to regulars of the elegant restaurant and bar in Baltimore's historic Belvedere Hotel. Playwright Mark Scharf set his 15th play produced by the Baltimore Playwrights Festival, Last Night at the Owl Bar, a haunt he's long admired. Of the Owl Bar location, Scharf quoted his central character Jonathan Caldwell: "I like it here because it's nicer than most places. I love the exposed brick and the polished wood.

Edgewood needed a win in last night's regular-season finale to qualify for the playoffs, and it got unexpected help from visiting North Harford to get it. The Rams took advantage of a short field three times - twice on Hawks fumbles and once on a penalty on a punt return. Quentin Bell and Manny Washington each ran for a touchdown, and quarterback James Scharf threw for another to give Edgewood a 20-14 victory over North Harford. North Harford (7-2), winners of the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference Susquehanna Division, had a Class 3A East regional playoff spot locked up, but Edgewood (8-2)

From Shakespeare to transit systems, from language usage to landscaping. The four one-act plays at Fell's Point Corner Theatre, jointly titled The Past Is Present, tackle diverse subjects at the same time that they showcase some of the Baltimore Playwrights Festival's more talented writing and acting. All four are by festival veterans. The middle two -Memory Garden and Wilderness, both by Mark Scharf - are distinguished by strong naturalistic dialogue and character development. In the first, a young widow (portrayed by Janise Whelan with a convincing blend of sensitivity and anger)

It's not only flowers that bloom in the spring. Also budding is news about festivals of new plays - by adults as well as youngsters. The 25th anniversary season of the Baltimore Playwrights Festival will be lean in numbers but broad in subject matter, with scripts on everything from love and loss to Shakespeare's agent. "Our silver anniversary - it's not often that a theater festival lasts that long, especially a festival that involves multiple theaters and is all volunteer," said chairman Mark Scharf.
