Description

November 21 – December 23, 2012: Bus Stop (Pearlstone Theatre)

In this 1955 romantic classic from William Inge (Picnic), a busload of strangers, down on their luck in love and bound for other places, wait out a snowstorm in Grace’s Kansas diner. From rodeo champ Bo and Cherie the chanteuse to forlorn Dr. Lyman and starry-eyed Elma, everyone’s chasing their slice of the American dream, and someone to share it with. And yes, that was Marilyn Monroe in the movie. 

**January 9 – February 24, 2013: The Mountaintop (Head Theatre)

**The Lorraine Hotel. April, 1968. In room 306, Dr. King unwinds and prepares. A visit from a hotel maid offers welcome diversion and a challenging new perspective-but also raises profound and surprising questions. Already a worldwide sensation, recently hailed in a star-studded Broadway production, Katori Hall’s sensitive new play gets its first showing for Baltimore audiences.

**March 6 – April 14, 2013: Mud Blue Sky (Head Theatre)

**Work, motherhood, missed connections, and prom night form the backdrop for Marisa Wegrzyn’s tender, funny new play. In a nondescript hotel room near O’Hare Airport, three flight attendants and an unlikely fourth companion poise on the brink of looking back and moving ahead.

April 10 – June 16, 2013: __Clybourne Park __(Pearlstone Theatre)

The Pulitzer Prize-winning drama taking America by storm. Picking up where Lorraine Hansberry left off in her landmark Raisin in the Sun (2001-02 Season), The New York Times called the riotous Clybourne Park a “darkly humorous dissection of race, gentrification and real estate.” 

**May 8 – June 16, 2013: Beneatha’s Place (Pearlstone Theatre)

**For his first drama set in America, Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah (Let There Be Love, Elmina’s Kitchen) offers his own response to Hansberry, continuing the conversation initiated in Clybourne Park.
