BALTIMORE, Maryland - January 2, 2015 - Iron Crow Theatre today announced it's 2014/2015 Season. A bold and daring reimagining of an experimental British work, Sarah Kane's 4.48 Psychosis, a world premiere by local Baltimore playwright Rich Espey, The Revelation of Bobby Pritchard, and the first ever all female cast in Iron Crow Theatre History in Holly Hughes', The Well of Horniness - deliver a powerful and exciting season featuring strong female characters.
"We consciously sought out plays that feature strong female characters and place them at the center of the action. These women fight to take charge of their lives from a dominant structure that marginalizes their humanity and seeks to curtail their agency over their own lives," said Iron Crow Theatre's Artistic Director Steven J. Satta.
The characters within 4.48 Psychosis struggle against the mental health system and take control of their destiny in the most primal way possible. In the world premiere of Rich Espey's The Revelation of Bobby Pritchard, Marta risks everything to expose a lie, reclaim her history and family, and re-enter her church community alongside the woman she loves. The all-female cast of The Well of Horniness takes no prisoners as they skewer the patriarchal film noir detective genre into inspired and irreverent lesbian lunacy.
These plays offer a range of styles and experiences: from the searing, disjointed poetry of Sarah Kane, to the restrained gothic lyricism of Rich Espey, and the explosive, irreverent comedy of Holly Hughes. Regardless of where you sit on the gender spectrum, these plays will speak to you, and these productions will provide you with a rich and satisfying evening in the theatre.
IRON CROW THEATRE is the theatre of mischief and subversion, a queer theatre celebrating the renegade and the unorthodox, in all of us, reflecting the diverse stories of our community and the world in which we live. We produce and create professional new work, re-imagine well-known stories, and seek out innovative scripts. Our work ignites conversation and all voices are welcome.

We look forward to seeing you there!
