The Potomac Playmakers announce the Second Annual One-Act Plays By Maryland
Playwrights! In keeping with the Playmakers’ mission of expanding theatre
into the community, The Potomac Playmakers are committed to presenting
original works by Maryland playwrights. The shows are as follows:
Phineas, by Jacon Waeyaert, starring Gregory Freeman, Jr., Mandy McClanathan,
Barry Harbaugh, and Caitlin McPherson — an original light drama, in which a
writer attempts to overcome a creative block. In the process, he explores
his life story and how it has contributed to his current block.  The story
details the struggle of artists, and the inner conflict that can arise in
attempting to attain one’s goals.
Absolution, by Gerard Marconi, starring Nic Randolph Sigman and Jacob
Waeyaert — an original drama in which two men examine their life choices,
finding conflict between spirituality and materialism.
Two Grunts For Yes, by Jessica McHugh, starring Barbara McCormick, Tod
Williams, Laurna Grubb, and Adam Martens – an original comedy, in which an
older couple wrestle with the idea of their daughter falling in love with a
man of a racial minority.
All three one-act plays are directed by Chas Rittenhouse and co-directed by
Laurna Grubb. The Second Annual One-Act Plays By Maryland Playwrights will
run on July 14 & 15 at The Women’s Club, located at 31 S. Potomac
Street, Hagerstown, Maryland 21740.  Showtime for both nights is 8:00 p.m.
Advance tickets are available for purchase online at, while $13 general admission tickets are available
at the door.
