Parlor Plays: “Be Professional” and “Orange!”

Baltimore playwright Peter Davis will present two of his Parlor Plays, “Orange!” and “Be Professional” on November 20 at 8 pm and November 21 and 22 at 7 and 9 pm, at Church and Company, 3649 Falls Road in Hampden.  Parlor Plays debuted with two original productions in May 2014. Since then, Davis has invited actors and audience to read plays in progress.  The upcoming plays are the result of this unique collaborative process.

“Orange and “Be Professional” are each about twelve minutes long and feature two characters.  In “Orange!”, a couple gets more than they bargained for when they try to spice up their marriage.  In “Be Professional”, best friends have different ideas about a disturbing occurrence, what it means and who owes whom.

“Like a great song, a short play can create a dimensional world and fully realized characters.  Both have the concentrated power to fill you with joy and move you to tears,” said Davis.

The venue offers the warmth of a home and the funky vibe of a salon.  Ticket prices are $12.  Refreshments will be available at an additional cost.
