Chatham Community Players will host its 27th annual JERSEY VOICES One-Act Festival with five performances between August 6 and August 15. This year’s production will include seven original short plays written by New Jersey playwrights.

We welcome you to join us as we explore the joys of live, original theater in The Chatham Playhouse, where JERSEY VOICES has provided a venue for New Jersey playwrights to showcase their work since 1995. There’s a risk in coming to see any author’s new work, whether you’ve heard of them before or not. It’s brave and courageous, and we’re grateful our audience trusts us enough to share the experience. JERSEY VOICES has presented the work of more than 90 authors in their 27 years.

As we got all the actors and directors together for our first read through, you could feel the excitement in the room as people prepared to create again” says producer Jessica Phelan of Montclair.
