Laurel Mill Playhouse, located at 508 Main Street in historic Laurel, MD., is proud to present World War II Radio Christmas by Pat Kruis Tellinghusen presented by special arrangement with Playscripts. Directed by Michael Hartsfield and produced by Maureen Rogers, this radio play opens Friday, December 17, 2021 and will be just for one weekend only.

This moving holiday show recreates the experience of attending a recording of a 1940s radio show broadcast on Christmas Eve during World War II. Using period songs and stories inspired by actual veterans, World War II Radio Christmas transports the audience to another time, brought to you by such generous sponsors as Vaseline Hair Tonic and Ipana Toothpaste. An inspiring look at strength in the face of hardship, this play is a reminder of the importance of coming together for the holidays. – Playscripts

Pipeline at Bowie State University, Nov 19 & 20, In Person

Bowie State University presents:
Pipeline by Dominique Morisseau

Friday, November 19, 2021 at 7:30pm
Saturday, November 20, 2021 at 7:30pm

Fine and Performing Arts Center, Black Box Theatre, Bowie State University, in person.

Pipeline by Dominique Morisseau delves into the all-to-real challenges of students caught in America’s broken education system which actively works against disinvested communities and students of color. Marking BSU Theatre’s re-emergence of live, in-person performance, this BSU Theatre production places audiences directly into the space where the drama happens – surrounded by the gates and walls that seem to confine the learner rather than foster growth. Pipeline’s directing team is led by graduating senior Sahira Parker, who shares this story of a mother’s immeasurable love, and whose resilience, patience and strength become the only protection and support for her son.

Free in-person performance, reservations required. Click here.

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. In Person.

In what playwright Lauren Yee describes as an “existential slasher comedy,” Hookman tells the story of Lexi, a college freshman who is haunted by the sudden death of her childhood best friend—all while navigating the pressures of being a young woman entering adulthood. The production brings the horror film genre to the stage, inviting audiences to explore themes of grief, trauma and guilt in an up close and personal way.

“Yee’s skill in crafting all the conversations is the great gift of her ‘Hookman,’ and not just for the character-specific comedy and deft social and generational satire packed within them. Beneath all the laughs is a yearning quest for connection and self-definition, struggling to break through the distractions of youth and digital immersion.” — Robert Hurwitt, SFGATE
