BASKING RIDGE, NJ - The Farmstead Players will read The Intruder, a one-act by Belgian playwright Maurice Maeterlinck on Monday, Feb. 3, 2014 at 7 p.m. at Farmstead Arts Center, 450 King George Road, Basking Ridge.

Also a poet and essayist, Maeterlinck, who wrote in French, won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1911 "in appreciation of his many-sided literary activities, and especially of his dramatic works, which are distinguished by a wealth of imagination and by a poetic fancy, which reveals, sometimes in the guise of a fairy tale, a deep inspiration, while in a mysterious way they appeal to the readers' own feelings and stimulate their imaginations."

The Farmstead Players’ public monthly reading series, directed by William Ward, is free, but contributions are gratefully accepted.
