Bergen County Players, one of America?s longest-running little theater companies, will conclude its successful 86th season with a limited engagement of Murray Schisgal's one-act comedy drama, The Typists.

When Paul Cunningham, a married man, reports for work addressing postcards for a mail-order house, he makes it clear to his fellow worker, Sylvia Payton, that his employment is strictly temporary.

Sylvia, the "supervisor" of the two-employee office, has a few dreams herself?mostly of the romantic variety. Paul and Sylvia hit it off well, and as Paul's "temporary" tenure stretches on from weeks to months to years, they become involved in the shared experiences of close daily contact. And, within the short span of the play, they begin to age and grow gray.

Exploring the cycle of life, complete with the humor, sadness, self-delusion and reconciliation which underlie and infuse the human condition, this Off-Broadway 1963 hit was awarded the Drama Desk Award, Obie Award, Vernon Rice Award, Saturday Review Critics Poll Award and Outer Critics Circle Award for Best New Playwright.

BCP offers seating to accommodate patrons who are mobility impaired. These seats can be purchased by calling the box office at 201-261-4200 and will be released for public sale two weeks prior to performance.

Parking is free for our patrons at the Park Avenue municipal lot, across the street, one-half block north of the theater.
