BALTIMORE: Single Carrot Theatre has announced its 2020-21 season, featuring a walking audio play and a production that plays directly to audience members’ cell phones.
“Single Carrot Theatre is delighted to present Season 13: The Edge of Something Good, a collection of new work to respond to the current moment,” said artistic director Genevieve de Mahy in a statement. “As we grapple with the challenging realities of our world, we don’t want to stop questioning, exploring, and growing—but we also want you to have some fun! We are experimenting with forms to make theatre that will pull you away from your screen and bring you theatrical experiences that are unique, thrilling, and safe.”
The season will open with Keep Off the Grass: A Guide to [something] (Sept. 24-Oct. 18, 2020), devised by the Single Carrot ensemble, collaborating artists, and the community of Baltimore. Keep Off the Grass is a contact-free outdoor walking audio play combining original folk tales with distanced visual performance installations designed to grapple with ethical dilemmas.
Next up will be Healthy Holly’s Hidden Hideaway (Jan. 13-Feb. 15, 2021), created by the Single Carrot ensemble and collaborating artists. This theatrical experience, brought to audiences by phone call and text, challenges audiences to figure out how to save Healthy Holly after the signature character is taken hostage.
The season will conclude with Is Edward Snowden Single? (April 30-May 23, 2021), by Kate Cortesi. This play, currently planned to be performed in person, examines whether to forgive or let go after someone you love betrays you.
Single Carrot Theatre creates socially relevant theatre as a form of civic engagement in Baltimore by producing vibrant, experiential performances in traditional and non-traditional venues.
