Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Ave., Cranford

Eileen, a props designer living her dream in Brooklyn, is faced with a tough decision when she is diagnosed with serious illness. Canarsie explores how grief and loss affect young adults and how it can make or break all sorts of relationships. So hop on the L train with Eileen and take it all the way to the last stop.

Andrew Barnes, a current Newark resident, is beyond grateful to The Theater Project and this wonderful team of creatives for helping bring Canarsie to life. Andrew’s other works have been seen across the globe from Road Trippin’ (winner of Oxnam Playwriting Award) workshopped by Ensemble Studio Theatre at Drew University; The ABC’s of Sexuality at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016; and Exhibit 1.1 at The Grove Theatre MU in London.

Andrew is also a director whose credits include Don’t Make it Weird by Darielle Shandler, Portland, ME, and Dead Rock Stars by Ryann Carey, Venus/Adonis Festival, New York. Andrew has his BA in Theatre Arts from Drew University and his MA in Theatre Arts with a concentration on new work development and solo performance from Middlesex University.
