Three Beckett plays, and news of symposium


Direct from Berlin, where the troupe performed in the international Samuel Beckett festival and symposium earlier this month, the Maryland Stage Company will present three short Beckett plays - "Play," "That Time" and "Ohio Impromptu" - at its home base, the University of Maryland Baltimore County Theatre, for seven performances beginning tonight.

Xerxes Mehta, the company's artistic director and president- elect of the Samuel Beckett Society, directs a cast of four - Sam McCready, Wendy Salkind, Bill Largess and Peggy Yates - in these works from Beckett's late period, the 1970s and 1980s. The set, lighting and sound are by Terry Cobb; costumes are by Elena Zlotescu.

Show times at the UMBC Theatre, 5401 Wilkens Ave., are 8 p.m. today, tomorrow, Saturday and Oct. 6 and 7, with matinees at 4 p.m. Oct. 1 and 8. Tickets are $15 general admission; $13 for UMBC faculty; $10 for seniors and $8 for students. (Maryland high school students are admitted free.) The company will talk about the play and the symposium in post-performance discussions scheduled for tomorrow, Oct. 1 and 6. For more information, call 410-455-2476.
