Single Carrot Theatre is gearing up to open the 3rd show of their 5th season, Hotel Cassiopeia, written by Charles Mee and directed by Ensemble Member Genevieve de Mahy. The show runs March 30 to April 29 with previews on March 28 and 29 at Single Carrot Theatre, 120 W. North Ave, Baltimore, MD.
Prolific artist Joseph Cornell's boxes each represent a magical world all their own. Every box contains its own world of scintillating possibilities. If these boxes could talk, what would they say? Obie Award winner and playwright Charles Mee dives headfirst into the absurd and revolutionary mind of an American genius and a true eccentric.
"In Hotel Cassiopeia, Cornell's boxes are described as ‘palaces of memory,'" said de Mahy, "He attempts to hold on to these unique, fleeting moments-to preserve everything that they were so that they can be experienced again and again. There is a dichotomy created in making a play about preservation of memory", she continued.
Patrons are encouraged to touch and explore the set, while the sights and sounds of Cornell's life clutter the intimate space.
Performances are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm (Wednesday, March 28th preview: 7:30pm), Sundays at 2:30pm.
Tickets are $10-20 which includes beer and wine. Contact 443-844-9253 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit singlecarrot.com.
