A Tantilizing Taste - Scenes from New Plays

Work is already underway for the 34th season of the Festival with scenes chosen for this year’s BPF Freefall event. The event will feature readings of eight 10-minute scenes from plays submitted for next year’s Festival. The scenes will be performed by some of Baltimore’s best community theater actors and the playwrights will be on hand to answer questions and talk about theater with the audience. Free refreshments will be provided after the event.

The plays to be featured are:

  • Discount Cigarettes by Jim Sheehan
  • Glass House by Jonathan Sachsman
  • Home With The Brave by Barry Trick
  • Long Live the Pig! by Barbara Barnow
  • Moose by Daniel Collins
  • Revisions by Diandra Leslie-Pelecky
  • Saving Myself For Steve Martin by Ann Wixon
  • The Great Vietnamese Bicycling Company by Sharon Goldner.

All seats are free; if you want to reserve a space, you can do so here.

Public board meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month.
