This Saturday, April 4th at 7pm., B&B invites your continued participation in the reading of this new play by playwright Joe Del Priore at the Center For Modern Dance Education in Hackensack.

In Del Priore's latest piece, "Fur On The Bumper," John, a mail carrier, finds that the ever-increasing stress of his job is taking its toll on him.  When he fails to find any comfort or help coming from his wife, his union representative, or his co-workers, he feels backed into a corner and has to take matters into his own hands. This play was inspired by his own experience as a mail carrier for 30 years, Del Priore explains.

Del Priore's writing has been published since 1982, and in the mid-nineties, he turned his literary attentions to the stage. Workshops in NJ and NY have showcased his skits, monologues and plays.  Some of his plays were featured in a workshop at The Bergen County Players, which was received with great enthusiasm.

Boz and the Bard's "Play With a Play" pledges to continue nurturing area playwrights by offering a venue to hear their works read, while at the same time  providing a uniquely  exciting way for actors and theater fans to spend a Saturday night. Hess and Avellino, as directors, guide participants through the process. Come take a script in hand and be part of the show, or sit back and watch the story unfold before you. Either way, you'll be playing an integral part in the further development of the play as afterwards you engage in a fascinating conversation with the writer, offering constructive feedback. Another session is scheduled for May 9th.

Dubbed "Karaoke for Actors" by a New Jersey reporter, "Play With a Play" audiences need only bring their interest in theater in order to participate in an evening of live entertainment.  For less than the price of a movie, the Play with a Play sessions continue monthly at the Center For Modern Dance Education, 84 Euclid Avenue, Hackensack, NJ. All sessions start at 7:00 PM. Admission is still $10 at the door, $7 for students and seniors. Watch for upcoming dates, or visit for more information.
