Hair Frenzy' a cut above

World premiere comedy captures Maine spirit

BANGOR The Bangor Opera House is playing host to a truly hair-raising experiencean experience taking place for the very first time.

Penobscot Theatre Company is presenting the world premiere of 'Hair Frenzy,' a new work by local playwright Travis Baker. Directed by PTC veteran Dominick Varney, this spiritual sequel to 2014's Clauder Prize-winning 'One Blue Tarp' is running through Feb. 14.

The play revisits the fictional town of Clara, Maine; it's a small town with a big heart, filled with the sorts of regular folks and eccentric characters that will likely ring familiar to anyone who has spent time in our state.

Local writer wins playwriting award

Clauder Competition names 'One Blue Tarp' Best Maine Play

ORONO Capturing the spirit of a place on the page can be an arduous task. Doing so by writing a play is even more so. 

This makes 'One Blue Tarp,' a play written by Orono resident Travis Baker, even more impressive. Not only has he created a nuanced piece exploring the nature of relationships here in Maine particularly the notion of people 'from away' but he has done so from a smartly skewed perspective that mines equal parts humor and pathos from those relationships.
