Art House Productions presents the New Jersey premiere of Stephen Kaplan’s play Tracy Jones, directed by Alex Tobey, with Performances across three weekends from October 19 through November 5, 2023. The play is a touching comedy of individual connection in an increasingly busy world.
The main character, Tracy Jones, rents out the back "party room" of Jones Street Bar and Grill: The Place for Wings and Things to throw a party to which she's invited every woman in the area who is also named Tracy Jones. Tracy sits for over an hour alone, nursing her Diet Coke, waiting for any other Tracy Joneses to show up, and help alleviate her epic loneliness. Through her encounters with the limited guests that attend, this hilarious play challenges the audience to question loneliness, connection, and why we do the things we do.
"We have been looking forward to producing Stephen Kaplan's fantastic new play, Tracy Jones, since we first started developing it in Art House's INKubator program five years ago. A pandemic and a whole brand-new theater later, and we're ready! If you love seeing theater, appreciate the work of NJ-based playwrights, and enjoy 90-minute plays that will make you laugh and warm your heart, do not miss Tracy Jones at Art House Productions this fall," said Meredith Burns (Art House Executive Artistic Director).
The show runs October 19, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28, and 29. November 2, 3, 4, and 5, 2023, at Art House, 345 Marin Boulevard (between Morgan and Bay Streets) in Jersey City, New Jersey. Performances take place Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3:00pm. Tickets are available for purchase online. Reserved Seating: $45.00, Students/Seniors: $35.00.
