EVERYBODY

Inspired by the 15th century morality play Everyman, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins creates an immersive theatrical experience that takes us through a hilarious, but piercing examination of mortality and human values.

Later: PETER PAN


PETER PAN
An original adaptation by Joshua Conkel
Directed by Thembi Duncan
Single Carrot Theatre
April 27 – May 20, 2018

A beloved tale of magic and mystery gets a new update in this re-imagining of a classic childhood story. Working in collaboration with Baltimore’s LGBTQ+ residents and service organizations, Single Carrot Theatre will create a new adaptation of the familiar favorite that includes contemporary conversations on gender, sexuality, and performative identity and embraces queer culture.

Neverland is transformed from a distant fantasy to a modern safe-haven for those who have been rejected and devalued, a stronghold against normalcy and a place where Peter and his Lost Boys can finally be themselves. World premiere.
