Spy thriller at Towson University


Hugh Whitemore's psychological spy thriller, "Pack of Lies," opens tomorrow at the Maryland Arts Festival at Towson University. Based on the true story of a Soviet spy ring in England in 1960, the play focuses on a suburban London couple whose neighbors may be KGB agents.

C. Richard Gillespie, founder of Towson's theater department, directs a cast headed by his wife, Maravene Loeschke, the university's dean of fine arts and communications, and Robert Riggs. Heather Hawes plays their teen-age daughter, and Judi Holloway and Stan Brown are the suspected spies next door.

The play opens tomorrow at the Studio Theatre in the Fine Arts Center, Osler and Cross Campus drives, at Towson University. Show times are 8:15 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2:15 p.m. July 5; through July 18. (No performance July 4.) Tickets are $13 and $15. Call 410-830-2787.
