The Friends of the Cranford Public Library invite everyone to attend a live theatrical performance - from the safety and comfort of your living room. New Jersey’s own Theater Project will present a virtual script-in-hand reading of "Stalled," an original short play by Kyle Mazer.
Synopsis: 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, like Shane, gets caught somewhere in between a peaceful present and a painful past, this gifted gambler must gamble once again, 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.”
The reading will be followed by a question and answer session with the audience, director, playwright and cast. Funds benefiting the Theater Project have been provided by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library.
