BRANCHBURG, NJ - Raritan Valley Community College’s Visual and Performing Arts Department will present a student theatre production of Craig Pospisil’s "Somewhere in Between," Nov. 16-19, at 7 p.m. at the Welpe Theatre onthe RVCC campus.

"Somewhere in Between" is a contemporary, sharply crafted romantic comedy in which the “laughs come easily and frequently,” according to City News.  In 10 comic scenes, the cast of 11 - playing multiple roles—takes the audience inside Jasper’s world of isolation, fear of uncertainty, and sense of impending doom.

Jasper takes his “lumps” in an elevator, the subway, a bookstore, a restaurant, and at work before a chance encounter with a homeless man provides needed perspective. With that and with the joy of finally making contact with the lovely Holly, he learns he can survive (and maybe even thrive) without a guarantee in his life.
