The Theater Project Presents Script-in-Hand Staged Reading of New Play by NJ Playwright Jewel Seehaus-Fisher on January 29

(Cranford, NJ) -- The Theater Project, Union County College's Professional Theater Company, will perform a script-in-hand staged reading of "Person of Interest", a new play by New Jersey playwright Jewel Seehaus-Fisher on Saturday, January 29 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. If bad weather closes the college, the reading will take place the following Saturday, February 5 at 3pm.

Based on historical evidence, "Person of Interest" focuses on a microbiology professor who is reluctantly pulled into an FBI investigation of an anthrax mailing that killed six people. Her closest friend and mentor is named as a person of interest and she is torn between her loyalty to her friend and her own suspicions.
