Boston Center for American Performance and New Repertory Theatre present
Baltimore
Written By Kirsten Greenidge
Directed by Elaine Vaan Hogue
A BU New Play Initiative Production
February 10-28, 2016
Boston University Theatre, Lane-Comley Studio 210

A rolling world premiere commissioned by the Big Ten Theatre Consortium. After she’s dismissed from her job in the athletics department, Shelby Wilson becomes Resident Advisor to a group of freshmen—after all, it’ll look good on her resume. She soon discovers that a racially charged incident has set student against student, and it’s up to her to mediate the situation. In this world premiere production, playwright Kirsten Greenidge explores the complexities of racism from the perspective of eight culturally diverse college students.

Opening Night: Friday, February 12, 8:00pm
