8th Annual Tri-State Theatre Festival
Produced by SSP Board Member Rob Sullivan
SSP will present another fan favorite — the one, the only, the original, Tri-State Theatre Festival — now back for its 8th year! SSP will showcase the best new short plays written by local writers from New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The festival typically receives about 300 entries annually and features a unique collection of short comedies and dramas designed to entertain and engage audiences. And don’t forget, after every performance, you have the option to stick around and “meet the artists” – a live Q&A with playwrights, actors and directors!

This event also serves as a fundraiser, with proceeds helping us maintain our commitment to producing high-quality, engaging theatrical experiences this season & beyond.

    $15 - adults

Written by A.R. Gurney
Directed by Annette Curran

The place is New York City, the time is the present. Middle-aged, upper-middle class Greg finds Sylvia, a dog (played by a human), in the park and takes a liking to her. He brings her back to the empty nest he shares with Kate. When Kate gets home, she reacts very negatively to Sylvia and wants her gone. They eventually decide that Sylvia will stay for a few days before they decide whether she can stay longer, but Greg and Sylvia have already bonded. Over the next few days, Greg spends more and more time with Sylvia and less time at his job. Greg and Sylvia go on long walks; they discuss life and astronomy. Already dissatisfied with his job, Greg now has another reason to avoid work.

Arsenic and Old Lace

"Arsenic and Old Lace"
May 3, 4, 5 and 10, 11, 12, 2019

Arsenic And Old Lace
Written by Joseph Kesselring
Directed by TBD

The play is a farcical black comedy revolving around the Brewster family, descended from the Mayflower, but now composed of insane homicidal maniacs. The hero, Mortimer Brewster, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, New York, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves. His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and "just a pinch" of cyanide; a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home (which then serve as graves for the aunts' victims; he thinks that they died of yellow fever); and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein (a character based on real-life gangland surgeon Joseph Moran) to conceal his identity, and now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff
