THE FLIP SIDE

Single Carrot is no stranger to risk-taking, and we love any opportunity to explore unconventional art forms, expanding our definition of what is “theatre.” With our eye toward theatrical innovation that excites and inspires our audience and artists, we’re creating an all-new series to complement our Main Season. Immersive, interactive, site specific, and full of laughter, song, movement, and mania, The Single Carrot Flip Side is designed to take what you think yo know about performance and flip it on its head.

All That Jazz

SCT is thrilled to present a new series featuring local Baltimore Musicians and music inspired by Charm City.  The ongoing concert program, launching December 9th with the Todd Marcus Quintet, will bring new, vibrant music to the Remington stage, and SCT could not be more thrilled to support art that is relevant both socially and artistically to the city as a whole.

UPCOMING ALL THAT JAZZ EVENTS:

PAST EVENTS:

Todd Marcus Quintet: Life in West Baltimore
Friday, December 9th
A 20-year resident and activist in West Baltimore’s Sandtown-Winchester and Upton neighborhoods, Todd Marcus has spent the past year writing new music portraying the challenges and strengths of his community, and the beauty of both. While much of the New Jersey native’s work has focused on his Egyptian heritage and incorporating Middle Eastern influences in his music, the bass clarinetist and composer drew particular inspiration from the death of fellow community-member Freddie Gray, seeking to translate the tension and unrest that followed into one of Baltimore’s oldest and proudest art forms: jazz.  Marcus debuted the composition with a five-day East Coast tour in September and will further its development in performance at SCT.
Russell Kirk & The Path
Sunday, April 2nd
A native of Baltimore, Maryland, the composer and saxophonist Russell Kirk received his undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins University, Peabody Institute. Following graduation he travelled with the USO, performing across several continents including Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

Playread with Me

Single Carrot is excited to present Playread With Me, an informal and interactive reading series. A cross between a bookclub and staged reading, Playread With Me invites audience members to join in the fun by assuming a role, reading along, or joining in the facilitated discussion afterward!
The featured plays all focus in some way on identity in America, addressing gender, sexuality, race and representation. It is SCT’s hope to engender and encourage discussion of these complex and nuanced issues.

UPCOMING READINGS:

Straight White Men By Young Jean Lee
TBA at The Wind-Up Space (12 W. North Avenue)
doors at 5:30pm, reading at 6pm
When Ed and his three adult sons come together to celebrate Christmas, they enjoy cheerful trash-talking, pranks, and takeout Chinese. Then they confront a problem that even being a happy family can’t solve: when identity matters, and privilege is problematic, what is the value of being a straight white man?

PAST READINGS:

An Octoroon By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins 
Wednesday, February 1st at The Wind-Up Space (12 W. North Avenue)
doors at 5:30pm, reading at 6pm
Judge Peyton is dead and his plantation Terrebonne is in financial ruins. Petyon’s handsome nephew George arrives as heir apparent and quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful octoroon. But the evil overseer M’Closky has other plans – for both Terrebonne and Zoe. In 1859, a famous Irishman wrote this play about slavery in America. Now an American tries to write his own.
Mutt: Let’s All Talk About Race! By Christopher Chen
Wednesday, November 2nd at The Wind-Up Space (12 W. North Avenue)
doors at 5:30pm, reading at 6pm 
The Republican Party finally – finally! – realizes it has a problem with race. So it decides its best chance for success in the 2016 presidential election is to back a candidate who’s of mixed race, white and Asian descent. They think they’ve found their man in Len, a multiracial war hero who can check off every single box – and maybe a couple more boxes no one knows about. A blisteringly funny satire that skewers not only the elephants in the room but the donkeys too, Mutt burns down the entire house of racial cards.
