Sharp and funny, Baltimore is a timely dramedy set on a college campus not unlike ours. When a racist incident divides her first-year students, Black resident advisor Shelby becomes the reluctant sounding board for upset friends, I'm-not-a-racist-but apologists, and people who just want everyone to get along. As pressure to address the controversy mounts, Shelby must decide if she will enter the fray or watch her community come apart at the seams. After each performance, we'll gather with undergraduate moderators for small-group conversations about creating positive change.
Presented in collaboration with the Office of Equity and Inclusion and Student Affairs and Campus Life.

$15 single tickets; $5 single tickets for students/seniors for all shows. Seating is general admission.
