MACHINAL by Sophie Treadwell
Directed by Deirdre McAllister
The Corner Carol
December 13
September 5 - September 29

Often included in lists of the greatest American 20th-century plays, and often one of the few on those lists written by a woman, Machinal recounts a woman’s rebellion against her husband and society. As a journalist, Treadwell covered the case of Ruth Snyder, an American woman who murdered her husband and was publicly executed in the electric chair. Treadwell was a Mexican-American playwright whose stark, 1928 play is still chillingly modern.

The Baltimore theatre community celebrates the holiday season with a cabaret of storytelling, poetry, dance

and music across all belief systems, inclusive and restorative. When we asked our artists what the season means them, they responded with: art in our community.

The 5th Annual Monologue Slam
January 18

by Eric Overmyer
Directed by Kimberley Lynne
and Penelope Chan
November 8 - December 1

Heed the call to discovery! Journey through uncharted territories! With wit, nerve, and proper Victorian sensibilities, three intrepid explorers bushwhack and time-travel their way through rain forest and glacier of Terra Incognita—the last uncharted land on the globe. This imaginative and lyrical play explores women's place in the universe, unbound by time, space, or location.

FPCT's annual Monologue Slam brings the area's best acting talent together for a one-night-only event to throw down and win city-wide bragging rights.

The FPCT Salon Series

After a wildly successful inaugural year, the Salon Series will also return as FPCT continues to invest in meaningful new play development and exploration. Whether continuing to nurture new full-length plays or delving into undiscovered texts with public readings, this free community offering will continue in 2024 -2025. Stay tuned for more information!

BLOOD AT THE ROOT by Dominique Morisseau
Directed by Brandon Rashad Butts
February 14 - March 9

This bold play by playwright and poet Dominique Morisseau (Confederates, Sunset Baby, Detroit ’67,and Skeleton Crew) examines the miscarriage of justice and racial double standards, as students today still protest on college campuses. This striking ensemble drama is based on the Jena Six case; six Black students were initially charged with attempted murder for a school fight after being provoked by nooses hanging from campus trees.

THE TENTH 10x10x10
SHORT PLAY FESTIVAL by Baltimore Artists

Directed by Baltimore Artists
May 16 - June 8

In a time when making new theater has never been more difficult, bringing new work to life is an act of rebellion! Fells Point Corner Theatre is deeply proud of our short play festival's legacy and impact, having launched work that lives on in full-length plays and feature films that have gone far beyond our local stage. Often our best selling production of the year, and involving the efforts of many, many volunteers, this festival will once again showcase ten short plays written by ten local playwrights, performed by an ensemble of ten actors. 
For the TENTH time.
