Free performance of the renowned play, The Colored Museum, on Friday, October 18th beginning at 8:00 p.m. at The Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway.
The Colored Museum was written in 1986 by George C. Wolfe. It provides a window into the struggles and resilience of African Americans through 11 vignettes, each focusing on a different “exhibit” bringing forth themes of racism, stereotypes, and African American cultural identity, enabling the audience to reexamine the history of African Americans.

The Theater Project will present a staged, script-in-hand reading of an original play by Brooklyn playwright Andrew Barnes, followed by a discussion with the audience, director, playwright and cast. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library.
37A is an inmate at an immigration detention faculty in London. Through his unthinkable toil, a new strength emerges as he learns to navigate his situation with little help from the outside. 37A serves as a reminder that we cannot become numb to what happens around us.
Brooklyn playwright, director and actor Andrew Barnes has his BA in Theatre Arts from Drew University and his MA in Theatre Arts with a concentration on new work development and solo performance from Middlesex University. His play Canarsie was a part of this same reading series last year. His other works include Pulse (Pridefest 2019), Road Trippin’ (winner of Oxnam Playwriting Award), The ABC’s of Sexuality (Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016), and Exhibit 1.1 (Grove Theatre MU).
The Theater Project is an acclaimed professional theater group and the winner of two New Jersey Tony Awards. Learn more about them at www.thetheaterproject.org.
Admission is free and all are welcome. For information about the Cranford Public Library, the Friends of the Cranford Public Library, and other upcoming events, visit the Cranford Public Library page at cranfordlibrary.org. The Cranford Community Center is accessible to all.
The Theater Project returns in 2020 with live, script-in-hand readings of original plays, followed by discussions with the playwright, director, cast, and audience. NJ actor, director, and writer Dennis D’Aprile will debut “Letters from a Self-Made Merchant to His Son,” a new work based on George Horace Lorimer’s 1903 book about a wealthy man grooming his son to take over the family business by making him start at the bottom, as portrayed in comparison to our modern measures of success.
On Saturday, February 8th, The Freeholder Board will present the Chester Holmes award before the production of Raisin: A Musical at UCPAC’s Hamilton Stage in Rahway from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. This is a musical adaptation of the Lorraine Hansberry play “A Raisin in the Sun”.
