The Theater Project (, a leading incubator for rising talent and a showcase for New Jersey artists, will present a live streaming ZOOM production of a dark comedy by noted playwright TyLie Shider, in September
, made possible by a prestigious National Endowment for the Arts grant. 

“This is an outstanding milestone for everyone—actors, staff and our supporters—connected with The Theater Project,” said Founding Artistic Director Mark Spina.  “The fact that we have such a prominent playwright and we received an NEA grant to produce his work shows that our efforts throughout the years, and especially during the challenging times this past year, has made an impact in the community we serve.”

Gaining regional recognition for its ongoing projects during the pandemic—including its annual Young Playwrights Competition, ARK (Actors Reading with Kids) program and its recently launched “The Theater Project Thinks About” podcasts—The Theater Project was just one of 22 organizations in New Jersey receiving grants for the 2021 fiscal year. 

To improve the virtual experience, LABOR will be using OBS-Zoom, which allows the production staff to provide sound effects and virtual backgrounds for the actors who will be performing in their "own space" from home, thus enhancing the performance for viewers.
