This year’s productions include a mix of work from established playwrights and some of the theater’s rising playwrights. So, the evening will be filled with some of the newest plays from known authors and some never-before-seen plays. Everyone will be captivated by this evening of theatrical works, which include: Come to Me by Elisabeth Zambetti, presented by Art House Productions; The Spot by Steven Dietz, presented by J CITY Theater; The Philadelphia by David Ives, presented by The Attic Ensemble; Patrick and Lisa’s Wedding by Duncan Pflaster, presented by The Theater Company; and, Chicken Salad by Joe Del Priore, presented by _gaia Studio.

“To me, this Festival represents a first serious effort to showcase our area theater companies in a wholly professional manner,” says Arian Blanco, this year’s Festival Production Coordinator. Blanco, co-founder and Executive Director of Hudson Exploited Theater Company (HExTC), reprises his role as Production Coordinator for a second year. “As a lifelong Hudson County resident, who has worked in theater mostly in New York over the years, I get great satisfaction with my role as Festival Coordinator in ensuring that this homegrown effort maintains an overall level of high artistic quality.”
