About A Short Reunion:
Since its inception, SCT has been privileged to perform the works of known, unknown, and soon-to-be-known playwrights in equal measure. Our commitment to introducing Baltimore audiences to plays that are both new and underproduced has allowed us to work with some amazing artists. To celebrate our epic 10th Season, we’ve commissioned playwrights from our past to write brand-new, never-before-seen shorts for SCT. Pieces by a growing list of playwrights, including the authors of Hotel Cassiopeia, Phoebe in Winter, and MilkMilkLemonade, will be performed and produced across Remington by the current ensemble, in collaboration with former ensemble members, returning specially for this spectacular, one-of-a-kind event.
About Promenade: Baltimore:
Grab your bus pass and get ready to ride. In partnership with the Hungarian company StereoAKT, SCT will move the theatre out of our building, onto a bus and into the streets and neighborhoods of the city we love. Viewers board a bus, which passes through neighborhoods both familiar and unknown. As actors on the street present poetic expressions of everyday life in Baltimore, complimented by a live-mixed soundscape of music, narration, and stories based on and told by neighborhood residents, the audience is challenged to view and question the borders and boundaries in our city from different angles. This unique ride highlight’s our city, its complexity, its struggles, and its beauty.
