A Virtual Presentation
on April 13, 2021

This free event is part of the Alliance’s Stages Festival, the state’s largest annual theatre festival, which provides free and discounted theatre events for all ages throughout the months of March, April, and May. 

Escape takes place on a fire escape where two people, desperate to escape their lives, meet one night and forge an unforgettable connection. Directed by Gail Winar and starring Desiree Pinol and Benjamin Satchel, the play contains adult language and themes.

The Stages Festival offers dozens of in-person and online performances, workshops, classes, and events at theatres, libraries, and other community venues throughout the state. The program was developed to encourage New Jersey’s residents to attend their local professional theatres by making the experience affordable, accessible, and fun.

The Alliance is grateful that New Jersey Rep is participating in the 2021 Stages Festival,” said John McEwen, Executive Director of the Alliance. “For more than 20 years, The Stages Festival has provided theatrical experiences for thousands of residents across New Jersey. While we may be gathering a bit differently this year, we are thrilled that theatre can remain a source of connection and joy in the Garden State. These efforts would not be possible without the wonderful help of partners such as New Jersey Rep.”

Ohl, Jr. Trust; New Jersey Historical Commission; and Fund for the New Jersey Blind.
