Focusing on Baltimore’s Brightest Artists
Words, Words, Words…
In honor of World Senior Citizen’s Day on August 21 — and his birthday next month — we’re shining a spotlight on local playwright Mark Scharf! Mark is an award-winning American playwright living in Baltimore whose plays have been produced and published widely in the United States and internationally.
Mark is passionate about mentoring the next generation of writers. He haspresented playwriting seminars for many prestigious colleges and universities, as well as the Maryland Writer’s Alliance and the Baltimore Playwrights Festival, where he also served three terms as Chair.
Locally, you may have seen Mark’s work performed at Baltimore Theatre Project, EMP Collective, Fells Point Corner Theatre, Vagabond Players, and more. Coming up, Spotlighters Theatre in the Mount Vernon neighborhood opens their 59th Season in mid-October with eight of his short plays, collectively titled “Scharf’s Schorts.” For more about Mark’s work and where you can see it performed, click on the button below.
