THE STORY: August, 1949. A fascinatingly realistic picture of routine cases brought into a bustling metropolitan police station in the course of an evening. Out of the welter of human misery, vice and foolishness there emerges the moving case of a decent young man who has stolen money from his employer; a hardened criminal dragging his young friend down with him; a lawless NJ "gardener" with a corrupt lawyer; and others. In the throes of the tumult is Detective McLeod -- a man whose black & white vision of justice will be challenged by the woman he loves most: his wife. A cast of 22 men and women will bring this drama of truth and consequences to life on the stage November 8-17, 2013.

Friday and Saturdays at 8pm
Thursday Nov. 14th at 7 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

winter wonderland at Project Greenville call for art

Happy Autumn to Everyone,
Most of Jersey City is now covered in red and yellow leaves and Columbia Park right down our street is looking beautiful in crisp fall colors! And while this is my favorite season, I am writing looking ahead to the wintertime in the hopes that, despite my late communication regarding our latest open call, some of you will participate in and attend our 3rd Annual Winter Wonderland Weekend! This years group exhibit and festivities will take place Friday Saturday and Sunday December 6th, 7th and 8th, from 5-8pm each day. Deadline for entries is November 29th (but I 'm flexible for those who may need slightly more time : ) and we are looking for your art, photos, collages, drawings, paintings, crafts and other creative endevours that depict or invoke your feelings and imagery of Jersey City during the winter/holidays/new year. Along with the group art exhibit there will be the usual array of snacks from nearby businesses, a children's toy drive bin (bring a new or extremely gently used unwrapped toy to add to the donation!) and neighborhood raffle featuring prizes from local merchants. We are also working on scheduling some great live performances to add to each evening! To participate or learn more please email me directly at projectgreenville@gmail.com or give a call or text to (646)361-1858. I'm sorry to have not gotten this info out sooner, but I hope many of you can still participate on this shorter-than-usual notice and that you will certainly write us into your schedule to come check out the event one of the days that weekend : )

As always many thanks to all of you who participate, volunteer and show your interest which certainly motivates me to keep reaching out....thank you thank you thank you! Looking forward to welcoming the winter with all of you....unofficial after-party over at Moore's Lounge for Miss Ruth's fresh fish fry and live music : )
