The Hot L Baltimore by Lanford Wilson directed by Brock Fisher.  Set in the lobby of the Hotel Baltimore, it focuses on the residents of the decaying property who are faced with eviction when the structure is condemned.   The New York Times said that The Hot L Baltimore was “both funny and sad” and The Village Voice called it “ a warm and intelligent wonderful evening in the theatre.”

Callbacks will be held on Thursday, September 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. where actors will read from the script.
