Like the chalk line down the middle of feuding siblings’ bedroom floors, the line between comedy and tragedy is thin and can lead to melodramatic outbursts if crossed by mistake. Watch as the pros cautiously tread the boards with today's Groupon to Strand Theater Company. Choose between the following options:
- For $40, you get a 2011-2012 season pass, not valid for opening nights (up to an $80 value).
- For $50, you get a 2011-2012 season pass for opening nights (an $100 value).
Named one of the best small theater companies in Baltimore by CBS, Strand Theater Company produces original works with a focus on female artists, transporting vivid, thought-provoking, and passionately performed stories to the stage. Regular pass holders can use their tickets at any performance of each of the five plays in Strand's 2011-2012 season except opening nights; those who opt for opening-night passes secure a seat at each show's premiere and a barrel of rotten vegetables to throw at anyone whose cell phone rings. Starting October 7, theatergoers take in Anna Bella Eema, which chronicles the fantastical journey of a mother, daughter, and newly animate mud-girl, as dreamed up by OBIE award-winning playwright Lisa D'Amour. That Pretty Pretty; or, the Rape Play, opening February 3, follows two ex-strippers on a murderous rampage, and Blood-bound and Tongue-tied premieres on March 23 to reimagine the tale of Oedipus in depression-era Texas. Attendees can peruse Strand Theater Company's website for a full listing of shows, performance dates, and rare photos of Lillian Hellman wearing a fake mustache.
