OPENING NIGHTS IN THE AFTERNOON: New Play at the Starting Gate 




Monthly Zoom readings of works-in-progress followed by discussions with the authors, sponsored by FRIENDS OF THE CRANFORD LIBARY.

Admission is FREE but REGISTRATION is required.






STALLED: On the morning of the 2018 Kentucky Derby, eighteen-year-old Shane Brady thinks he’s got life all figured out—working as a parking attendant at the Jersey shore, he’s got friends, the girl of his dreams, and an uncanny ability to bet on horses. But as the play, just like Shane, gets caught somewhere in between a peaceful present and a painful past, this gifted gambler must gamble once again, except now on himself and his own future.

​Kyle Mazer is from Millburn, New Jersey and is a rising senior at Yale University, where he studies English. Stalled is Kyle’s first play, based off a lifetime love for horseracing inspired by his father, and many summer days spent down at the Jersey Shore.  Kyle has written two comedy musicals, he frequently performs stand-up in New Jersey and Connecticut, directs a sketch group called “The Good Show.” He wants to thank The Theater Project for their generosity and creativity in making this project happen!
