Play Reading by The Theater Project - "Embedded" by Mary Jane Walsh

The Theater Project will present a reading of Embedded, a new one-act play by Mary Jane Walsh. Embedded has seven characters and is set in a common war zone—a home. The enemy is the universal, raging alcoholic father. The children are the feisty foot soldiers who face reality and meet the enemy head on. The mother uses her children as shields to protect herself. Is it abuse to put them in the line of fire? Mary Jane Walsh is a playwright and actor. She wrote and performed her one-woman play, Finishing It Off!, which premiered in Richmond, Virginia. It was translated into Spanish as a two-person play entitled Luces in Espejo for its international premier in Montevideo, Uruguay. It was also performed in Spanish at the International Festival of Hispanic Theater in Washington, D.C. Jersey Voices at the Chatham Playhouse twice produced her 10-minute play, Ping, which she produced and performed at the Short Play Lab, Times Square Arts Center in New York City. The La Strada Ensemble Theater in Asbury Park also produced Ping. The Theater Project produced her plays My Sister’s Back is Killing Me, A Can of Worms, and Gone to the Gulag at the Burgdorff Center in Maplewood. Ms. Walsh is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America and the Theater Project. The Theater Project, headquartered at the Burgdorff Cultural Center in Maplewood, is an acclaimed professional theater group and the winner of two New Jersey Tony Awards. Following the play reading, the audience will have the opportunity to discuss the play with Ms. Walsh. Admission is free and all are welcome. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library.

Instead, it turned out to be a nearly 40-year odyssey in local journalism—including the last eight—overwhelmingly great—years with The Alternative Press (TapInto.Net).

I have decided it is time to spend more time in ...
