‘The Baltimore Waltz’, an award winning play by Paula Vogel, gets a new production by exciting new theatre company, Blue Heart Theatre.
Acting Out is delighted to announce a new production, a joint venture with the newly established Blue Heart Theatre, of Paula Vogel’s award winning play, The Baltimore Waltz from Wednesday September 3 to Saturday September 6 at the Harbour Playhouse.
Anna and her beloved gay brother Carl, finally make a long planned trip to Europe in search of a cure for her recently diagnosed terminal illness. But when they get there, nothing is, as it seems. Why is Carl always in his pajamas? Who is the mysterious Third Man? And why do none of their holiday snaps look anything like the places they visit?
This serious comedy was American playwright Vogel’s response to the death of her brother, who died from complications due to AIDS. Whilst it has established itself as a modern American classic, it has not been performed in Ireland up until now.
Blue Heart Theatre are an exciting new company formed partly from existing members of Acting Out, Dublin’s LGBT community theatre and some new collaborators. Blue Heart aim to present new and unknown plays in Ireland and the UK, in a fresh and innovative way.
Director of the play Ayrton O’Brien commented, “While it has many comic moments, there is an underlying sadness to the piece, and getting that balance is a real challenge for us”.
The play is being presented in an exciting new performance space, The Harbour Playhouse in trendy Portobello.
