Tying the Knot

by James Beller

Directed by Daniel Douek

When Michael announces to his mother Arlene that he is getting married, it is the happiest day of her life. But when he tells her he's marrying Pauline and not David, the boyfriend with whom he broke up three months earlier, Arlene is not merely shocked, she is outraged. Turning the stereotypical parental reaction on its head, Arlene uses every arrow in her quiver to try to prevent this "disaster" and make sure her son marries the right man and not the wrong woman!

Performances: Friday August 14 through Sunday August 23. Fridays August 14 and 21 at 8 pm, Saturdays August 15 and 22 at 8 pm, Sundays August 16 and 23 at 2 pm. Reservations and information at www.fpct.org.

Baltimore Playwrights Festival News

BPF sadly announces the passing of William "Bill" Toohey

The BPF board sadly announces that our communications head, William "Bill" Toohey, has recently passed away. He came to Baltimore as a reporter, then interim news director, and eventually evening news anchor for the old Johns Hopkins radio station WJHU, now WYPR. He worked as a city spokesman, then was part of Sen. Barbara Mikulski's staff and later worked for Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes. Bill was the Baltimore County police spokesman for years and eventually went to work as the communications director for the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention. He also taught communications at Towson University. "Bill Toohey was an old school kind of guy with absolute integrity and the highest standard of professionalism," Barbara Mikulski said. "He was a man with such generosity, always there with a kind word and helping hand." Thank you, Bill, for all the time and effort you spent making the Festival the best it could be.
