Theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck joins us each week with a review of one of the region's many thespian offerings.  Today, she spotlights Dirty Pictures, a new work from Rapid Lemon Productions, getting its world premiere this month at the Baltimore Theater Project

The final production in Rapid Lemon's 2018 season, Dirty Pictures is a bawdy comedy about four people whose lives are transformed by the discovery of some sexually explicit photographs in a Colorado roadhouse in 1982.  RLP's artistic director, Lance Bankerd, directs the cast that features Chara Bauer as Bonnie, Terrance Fleming as Dan, Allison Sarah Burrell as Judy, and Matthew Lindsay Payne as Chet. 

A semi-finalist at the Eugene O’Neill National Playwrights Conference, this play is the latest work by D.W. Gregory, a playwright and educator currently living in Washington DC. Her previous work includes Radium Girls and Memoirs of a Forgotten Man, which showcased at this summer's Contemporary American Theater Festival.

Gregory's work examines American culture through a political and often comedic lens, and it's won and been nominated for numerous awards.

Rapid Lemon Production's  Dirty Pictures continues at The Theatre Project through Sunday, October 21st.

J. Wynn Rousuck has been reviewing theater for WYPR's Midday (and previously, Maryland Morning) since 2007. Prior to that, she was the theater critic of The Baltimore Sun, where she reviewed more than 3,000 plays over the course of 23 years. Her feature coverage for The Sun included a comprehensive series chronicling the development of the Tony Award-winning musical, “Hairspray.” Judy got her start at The Cleveland Press and at Cleveland’s fine arts radio station, WCLV. Her broadcasting experience also includes a year as an on-air theater critic for Maryland Public Television.
