When a racially-charged incident divides her first-year students, reluctant resident advisor Shelby finds herself in the middle of a conversation she does not want to have. As pressure to address the controversy mounts from residents, the new dean, and even her best friend, Shelby must decide if she will enter the fray or watch her community come apart at the seams. Sharp, funny, and searing, Baltimore explores the complexities of racism from the perspective of eight culturally diverse college students.


“There is a compelling urgency running through “Baltimore”…In the diversity of its characters and in the issues that drive the play, it feels utterly contemporary.”
