Best New Theater: Cohesion Theatre Company

3717 Gough St., cohesiontheatre.org

Within the bloom of young theater troupes in Baltimore, the most impressive has been the Cohesion Theatre Company, which in its first year mounted a raw, low-budget production of Shakespeare’s “Coriolanus” plus slyly witty interpretations of two contemporary plays: Tom Horan’s “Thirteen Dead Husbands” and Anna Moench's “The Pillow Book.” The group started in a former auto-parts store in Highlandtown and then moved to a church in Canton, always compensating for low funds and unconventional spaces with solid acting and inventive design. Best of all, co-founders Alice Stanley and Brad Norris were prime movers behind the summer's Parityfest that organized readings of new scripts by underproduced female playwrights.
