The Theater Project Presents Script-in-Hand Staged Reading of New Play by NJ Playwright Matty Daley on November 20

(Cranford, NJ) -- The Theater Project, Union County College's Professional Theater Company, will perform a script-in-hand staged reading of "Without X-Cess", a new play by New Jersey playwright Matty Daley on Saturday, November 20 at 3pm. The production will be followed by a lively discussion with the playwright, director, actors and audience.

The performance will take place in the Roy Smith Theater at the Cranford campus of Union County College, 1033 Springfield Avenue. Admission is free. The material is for mature audiences only.

Currently a student at The College of New Jersey, Matty Daley is a two-time past winner and honorable mention recipient of The Theater Project's Young Playwrights Competition. He is also a recent semi-finalist in Stephen Sondheim's National Young Playwrights Competition. In 2011, he is looking to continue his studies as he pursues a graduate degree in dramatic writing.

"Without X-Cess" imagines a world 20 years from now where all the women have disappeared. What if men had to go through labor pains and morning sickness? Will humankind perish or will the men who remain step up to the plate?

Reservations are not required. For more information, contact The Theater Project at (908) 659-5189 or by email at THEATERPROJECT@aol.com.
