Fells Point Corner Theatre (FPCT) is proud to announce its 35th season, a mix of relevant and powerful, fully-produced plays, and FPCT’s signature events, like The Corner Carol, the 10×10 Short Play Festival and the Monologue Slam. As the theatrical world changes, FPCT owes this town a reflection of art that navigates complicated narratives and explores what holds us together and what drives us apart.
The Thanksgiving Play by Larissa FastHorse
Directed by Brandon Rashad Butts
November 4 – 27, 2022
In this 2015 wickedly funny satire by Larissa FastHorse, good intentions collide with absurd assumptions as a troupe of “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month. FastHorse has written and produced plays involving challenges that indigenous people have in American society.
An Evening of May Miller
Readings of Plays and Poems
January 7 – February 4, 2023
A night of readings of selected one-acts and poems by DC native May Miller. May Miller was the most widely published female playwright of the Harlem Renaissance and a prolific poet, in addition to being a (somewhat) local treasure.
Dead Man’s Cell Phone by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Kimberley Lynne
February 17 – March 12, 2023
This magical play by Sarah Ruhl explores the paradox of modern technology’s ability to both unite and isolate people in the digital age. Sometimes darkly funny, sometimes deeply profound, the play was awarded a Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding New Play when it premiered at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. in 2007. Robert Hurwitt, in reviewing a 2009 production, describes Ruhl’s world “of ordinary people living extraordinary lives and small coincidences opening into quirky metaphysical conundrums…. Ruhl’s gifts of probing humor, vivid imagination and poignant humanity are alive here.”
