A young woman speaks truth to power, but her king is convinced that his word is law. An ancient play that still resonates today.


Baltimore by Kirsten Greenidge is a contemporary story about the loss of innocence and the coming of age of a student forced to encounter the social ramifications of difference and her own cultural relevance.

Baltimore is part of the Big Ten Theatre Consortium’s New Play Initiative for women playwrights.

Join the artists, featuring a panel of guests, for a conversation with the audience following the performance on February 28, 2016.
