WHERE: The Loft at UCPAC, 1601 Irving St., Rahway, NJ
At Home at the Zoo combines Edward Albee's classic,The Zoo Story, with its prequel, Homelife, to form a complete story of Peter (a book editor), Ann (his wife), and Jerry (a desperate man Peter meets in the park).
The play begins by offering a revealing look at Peter and Ann's marriage and their brutal, failed attempts to communicate about it. The tone changes dramatically when Peter goes out to the park and meets Jerry. Jerry begins to tell Peter tale after tale, each more lurid than the next. Jerry appears to be completely alone; he can't even make a connection with his landlady's dog.
Live For Christ Ministry Presents BRICKS
WHEN: Sat Nov 02, 2019 8:00 PM
WHERE: UCPAC'S Hamilton Stage, 360 Hamilton St., Rahway
LFCM presents an original stage play, Bricks, debuting on the Hamilton Stage!
Bricks is a riveting and fresh work of art. It is the highly anticipated sequel to Men at the Cross, which left audiences clamoring for more.
Bricks follows the life of Tonya, who finds herself full of anger after returning home from a church conference. She has come to the realization that life has left her broken, seemingly beyond repair. Tonya is confronted with a deceptive husband, friends that really hate her, her beloved church now standing in judgment against her and a job that has taken advantage of her.
These circumstances have created the perfect storm for her plan: the ultimate revenge. The anticipation will keep you on the edge of your seat! Will rage prevail, or can God use a vivid and heart stopping dream to derail her plan of destruction? How will she handle the bricks that have been thrown at her?
