NJ DEBUT OF 2 ORIGINAL WORKS @ FEARLESS PRODUCTIONS IN RAHWAY

A Promise to Your Mother

A Promise to Your Mother explores the lives of those left behind in the wake of man's heinous crimes. In this powerful, one-act play, Kelner explores how four victims yearn for a safe place—a place to connect, to share and to trust—and raises challenging questions about the choices we confront in the face of tragedy and evil.

Horseshoes...
Written and Directed by Mike Sockol

WHEN: 11/13 and 11/14 @ 9:00 p.m., 11/15 @ 3 p.m.

No one said it would be easy for Adam on the eve of his family’s
annual horseshoe tournament. His brother is dead, his father is
losing his mind, and his wife seems to prefer yoga to him. Worse. of all, how will he get rid of two cases of celery-flavored beer? Set against the backdrop of a family in transition, Sockol tackles difficult issues, such as death, dementia and infidelity, with equal doses of realism and humor.
