CRANFORD—The Friends of the Cranford Public Library and the Theater Project will host a script-in-hand, staged reading of three solo performance pieces written by Jonathan R. Citron on Saturday, Nov. 19, at 2 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue.
Entitled “Humpty Dumpty,” “Voices,” and “La Vie Perdue,” the three works will be performed by Theater Project members Gary Glor and Rick Delaney, who will also serve as directors. The Theater Project is a professional theater company, which, until recently, was located at Union County College’s Cranford campus.
“Humpty Dumpty” tells the true story of the conspiracy that led to the magnificent egg, Humpty Dumpty, being left on a wall. In “Voices,” the narrator tells the story of writing his second novel—his first having been a bestseller—and the lengths he will go to in order to create his next opus. He, himself, proves his own worst enemy. “La Vie Perdue” is a dark tale about the return by ship of an ex-pat after many years abroad to an uncertain future back home in the United States.
The reading will be followed by a discussion among the author, the actors/directors, and members of the audience. Admission is free and all are welcome.
