Nothing Can Keep New Plays New Jersey Down!

We said we'd keep you in the loop as to when our rescheduled New Plays New Jersey performances would be and we've got the dates for you! Two of the readings will take place at The Bickford Theatre in Morristown, as originally planned, but two others are going to be held at Short Stories Bookshop and Community Hub, right here in Madison. We're really happy to be back at The Bickford, which has been home to the series for the past few years, but we're equally as excited to bring some of the readings to Short Stories, which has hosted some of our classes and to our Banned Together Cabaret earlier this year.

Without further ado, here are the new dates for New Plays New Jersey:

At the Bickford Theatre at the Morris Museum
6 Normandy Heights Rd, Morristown, NJ:

Sunday, March 18th at 7 PM - "Psychodrama" by Phoebe Farber
Friday, March 30th at 7 PM - "La Fonda" by Suzanne Trauth

At Short Stories Bookshop and Community Hub
23 Main Street, Madison, NJ:

Sunday, March 25th at 7 PM - "Nichiiwad" by Hal Corley
Saturday, March 31st at 7 PM - "Turning"  by Darrah Cloud

Parking: The Bickford parking lot is the Morris Museum's parking lot, on the side of the building. Short Stories has parking behind the building - you'll want to use the driveway entrance on Green Village Road, which will be on your left just before the railroad overpass.

Thank you all for being so patient and understanding as the storm forced us to have to cancel and reschedule and we hope to see you on these new dates for the readings!

We also wanted to remind you that both our NJ Women Playwrights Project readings celebrating Women's History Month and our Mile Square Playground readings are still happening this month, in Jersey City and Hoboken respectively.  The schedule for those is as follows:

At the Jersey City Theatre Center
339 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, NJ:

Wednesday, March 21 at 7:30 PM  - "Wish Bone" by Phoebe Farber 
Wednesday, March 28 at 7:30 PM  - "Pushing the River" by Rosemary McLaughlin 

At Mile Square Theatre
1400 Clinton St, Hoboken, NJ:

Tuesday, March 20  at 7:30 PM  - "The Forest" by Lia Romeo
Tuesday, March 27  at 7:30 PM  - "The Other White Meat" by Erin Mallon

As always, all our readings are free of charge, with a $10 recommended donation (or donate what you can) and you can use any leftover punches on your WTNJ reading passes. If you're interested in purchasing a 7-Play Pass, you can still get those on our website, here. And all of our reading series this month are a part of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance's annual Stages Festival, a statewide celebration of theatre that brings free and low-cost performances to NJ audiences.

Thank you and we hope to see you soon!
