Within the ranks of the Bergen County Players are some amazingly talented writers, some of whom have already had plays published and performed. “An Evening of One Act Plays” presents 5 plays that cover a wide spectrum of entertaining and thought-provoking subjects. This is a unique opportunity to experience a series of extraordinary and new plays in an intimate setting.
Burping the Baby by Eileen Deutsch, is a short comic piece about a man and a woman struggling mightily to entertain the audience, a.k.a. "The Baby" with a variety of tactics.
Remember Love by Elaine Davis is about two sisters struggling to agree on what to do with their aging mother, who has memory issues.
Tim Eless: Private Eye by Stephen Kaplan is about whether a private eye with a short memory can handle a case brought by a leggy femme fatale.
