“Love Is A Blue Tick Hound”

Jan. 12

As the theatre world continues to disproportionately produce plays written by men, the push for gender parity in theater has ramped up. It seems that in the last few years here in Baltimore, most theater companies have made efforts (not that it’s hard!) to include more women playwrights and directors in their seasons. We have to thank for that shift, among others, Stand Theatre Company, which has been producing women-focused theater in Baltimore for the past decade; Cohesion Theatre Company, which in its first year orchestrated a city-wide Parity Festival that encouraged local companies to stage full-scale productions, workshops, and readings of plays written by women; and the Women’s Voices Theater Festival, now in its fourth year. WVTF is centered in D.C. but stretches to Baltimore with a small handful of affiliated productions: This year, we have Center Stage’s production of Dominique Morisseau’s “Skeleton Crew” (Jan. 25-March. 4), Strand’s production of Dominique Cieri’s “Count Down” (Feb. 14-March 4), and starting this weekend, Rapid Lemon Productions stages “Love Is A Blue Tick Hound,” a new collection of four short two-handers by Audrey Cefaly, known for her distinctly Southern storytelling. According to RLP, “Hound” poses as its central questions: “Why do we settle . . . and what is the full cost of leaving?” Check it out and mark your calendars for the rest of WVTF—if you can, try venturing down to the capital to really bulk up on women playwrights. Through Jan. 21, Baltimore Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., (410) 752-8558,, $20-$21. (Maura Callahan)
