The 26th annual Jersey Voices One-Act Festival will feature five virtually streamed performances. This year’s production will include six original short plays written by New Jersey playwrights.
  • “A Man Walks Into a Bar” by Nathan Christopher, directed by Kevern Cameron.  Starring: Dale Monroe and Spy Spiegel Monroe
    Why, she asks herself, is she still working behind this bar anyway, in this nothing-to-see-here town midway between two better places? And then a man walks in.
         
  • “Date With Death” by Steven Hayet, directed by Lynn Polan, Starring: Ali Archetti, Crystal Ann Bennett, and Ross Pohling
    Dating is hell. Rather than deal with the awkwardness of turning someone down, Angela takes a different route.
           
  • “Free Range Cows” by Lynn A. Langone, directed by Joann Lopresti Scanlon. Starring: Barb Haag and Anna McCabe
    Mom and daughter head out on a road trip, bonding through long stretches of the USA and the music they listen to along the way.

  • “Never Will I Ever” by K.F. Lerner, directed by Elissa Strell. Starring: Liza Harris and Jason Kruk
    A newly "empty nested" husband and wife look middle age in the face with sadness, with joy and without blinking.
           
  • “Onward” by Lauri MacMillan, directed by Wendy Schibener. Starring: Bridget Burke-Weiss, John A.C. Kennedy, Julie Anne Nolan, and Glen D. Post
    Two families, created through divorce, come together to celebrate the achievement of their son and reflect on their journey “onward.”
     
  • “Amnesty Week” by Loretta Bolger Wish, directed by Christopher C. Gibbs. Starring: Lisa Barnett and Terri Sturtevant
    In a library, two women discuss the mystery and the magic of falling in love...with a book
