Event description

Description

Baltimore's Rapid Lemon Productions concludes its 2018 season with another premiere by another local playwright!

Dirty Pictures is a bawdy stage comedy about four lives transformed by the discovery of 21 shocking photographs.

One night in a Colorado roadhouse, in the depths of the Reagan recession, four lonely lives are transformed by the discovery of 21 nudie snapshots. Judy, the sharp-witted bartender, never lets her disability get in the way of what she wants—except when it comes to her boss, Dan, a big-hearted guy with no head for business, who is busy working out his issues—once again—with his girlfriend Bonnie, a waitress so comely that guys give her $10 tips just for wiping up the beer she spills on them. Only Chet, a steady customer, gives Judy a second look, but she’s got no interest in an out-of-work meatpacker who imagines himself the next Ansel Adams. It all comes to blows one Monday night when Judy decides to make her play, unaware Chet has cooked up a convoluted scheme to woo her that involves a clandestine photo session with Bonnie and a secret trade for a classic motorcycle. A deceptively subversive small cast comedy stage play about redefining beauty in an image-obsessed culture.

D.W. Gregory is a local writer whose star is on the rise, fresh off her work appearing in this summer's Contemporary American Theater Festival.

Free Fall Baltimore is presented by BGE, and is a program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
