Dover Little Theatre will grant the stage to a long time supporter when they present a stage reading of Four Distant Conversations by George Castellitto.  He has been associated with The Dover Little Theatre as a patron, along with his wife Mary, for the last ten years.  After being such a dedicated supporter of the theater, the Board of Directors jumped at the opportunity to present Mr. Castellitto’s play when he approached them with an idea for a fundraiser. 

Mr. Castellitto, a Professor of Modern Literature at Felician College in Lodi, NJ for 23 years, proposed that they present his play and use the proceeds toward the Dover Little Theatre Building Fund, which was established last year to help make needed repairs to the over100-year-old building that houses the theater group. 

When asked to describe the play, the writer stated “Four Distant Conversations is a play that portrays four men who grew up in the 1960's and who have some very specific and not always commendable attitudes toward God, marriage, women and society in general.  The characters all have some hidden (and the audience will soon discern) rather petty ‘grudge’ against other men in the group, showing that adult men often still act like teenagers.” The characters in the play are based on people from the author’s youth when he was growing up in Jersey City.

The play features performances by Clinton L. Scott (Hawthorne), Tom Morrissey (Rockaway), Tim Murphy (Boonton) and Thom Florio ( Jefferson ).
