Theater Project to present seven comedies by or about senior citizens

The Theater Project will be present staged readings of seven short comedies written by and about senior citizens on Saturday, Sept. 21, at 2 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center, which is located at 220 Walnut Ave. The plays were developed at a playwrights’ workshop at Stonebridge, an adult community in Monroe, with the guidance of playwright Marv Siegel.

The Theater Project is an acclaimed, New Jersey-based professional theater group and the recent winner of two New Jersey Tony Awards. Seigel was a founding member of the Theater Project’s playwrights’ workshop and presented his play, “Generations Apart,” as the first in the Theater Project’s long history of staged readings of new plays. Subsequently, “Generations Apart” made its production debut at the Theatre Conspiracy in Ft. Myers, Fla., to rave reviews.

The play readings will be followed by a discussion among the writers, the actors, and the audience. Admission to the program is free and all are welcome. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library. For more information about the Theater Project, visit them on the Web at or call 908-809-8865.
