Women's History Month continues as we present our final New Jersey Women Playwrights Project reading at Jersey City Theater Center for the season. Stacy Lents' WRITTEN ON HER FACE explores the relationship between a professor and her student - how much caring is too much and when does that line get crossed?
We've had three fantastic readings so far this month at the JCTC in this extension of our existing New Jersey Women Playwrights Project program and are excited for this fourth performance. We'd like to thank Speranza Theatre Company, the Jersey City Theatre Center, the New Jersey Theatre Alliance, and all our partners for making this series so successful. These readings are presented as a part of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance's Stages Festival, which brings free and low-cost performances to audiences throughout the state during the month of March.

The Birth of A Play
The Birth of a Play is one of dozens of events offered during New Jersey Theatre Alliance’s Stages Festival and is the kick-off event for NJPAC Stage Exchange: The Commisions 2016, a groundbreaking new-play commissioning program, also known as NJStageX, that we're excited to be a part of!
Come sit, listen to, and talk to three of New Jersey's leading playwrights and the artistic directors who are producing their plays, as they talk about the work and the themes behind the work.
David Lee White will be dicussing SANISM, which is being produced by Passage Theatre Company and Passage Artistic Director, June Ballinger will be on hand to participate in the discussion. Nikkole Salter will be dicussing her play, INDIAN HEAD, which is being produced by Luna Stage and Cheryl Katz, Luna's Artistic Director, will be on hand to participate. And Chisa Hutchinson will be talking about SURELY GOODNESS AND MERCY, her newest play, which will be produced right here at Writers Theatre of New Jersey, and our very own John Pietrowski will be there talking about that exciting new collaboration. Professor R.N. Sandberg will be moderating the dicussion.
This will all be taking place this THURSDAY night at the Madison, NJ Public Library on 39 Keep Street.

The Black Maria Film Festival Returns to Madison!
Looking further ahead to April 1st, the Black Maria Film Festival will return to Madison! The presentation will be in The Chase Room at the Madison Public Library, and is sponsored by the Madison Arts and Cultural Alliance. The previous date was cancelled due to a problem with the heater in the room.

The program features a collection of the Festival’s award-winning short films including animation, narrative, experimental and documentary. Festival director Jane Steuerwald will present the program in person, and host a Q & A with the audience.

The Black Maria Film Festival has generous support from New Jersey City University, New Jersey State Council on the Arts, the Hudson County Office of Cultural Affairs and Tourism. The Festival showcases the works of highly accomplished independent filmmakers and is a project of the Thomas A. Edison Media Arts Consortium, an independent non-profit organization in residence at NJ City University’s Department of Media Arts.

The festival was founded in 1981 as a tribute to Thomas Edison’s development of the motion picture at his laboratory, dubbed the “Black Maria” film studio, the first in the world, in West Orange, NJ. The Black Maria Film Festival has been awarded the New Jersey State Council on the Arts Citation for Excellence for eight consecutive years. Each program on the tour is custom curated so if you go to one, the next one may be a completely different selection of films.
