Jersey Voices has provided a venue for New Jersey playwrights to showcase their new works since 1995. Each year we hope to present the very best, new, original one-act plays by New Jersey authors. There’s a risk in coming to see any author’s new work, whether you’ve heard of them before or not. It’s brave and courageous, and we’re grateful our audience trusts us enough to share the experience. Jersey Voices has presented the work of more than 70 authors in their 22 years.

In Reverse Order

Knock Out

“Playwriting is alive and well in New Jersey” says Co-Producer, Bob Denmark. “This year’s plays include a talking dog, an unlikely couple who meet at the bus stop, an aging ‘Princess’ from a string of famous sci-fi movies, an exceptionally organized young woman, singing waiters, and, yes, an incredible porno collection.”


Badger and Maddy

Each year dozens of people – authors, actors crew, directors – do their best to give us new material, fresh faces, different perspectives and interesting ideas - in short, good theater. "While we never have a theme in mind, every year, when the one-act plays are selected, a theme is identified. This year, the plays show us that love and hope can be discovered where and when you least expect it”, said Co-Producer Andrea Herbert.

A Dog's Life

Hair, Shoes, Coffee

Each of the following pieces will be performed each night of the festival:
  • Knock Out by G. David Post of Sparta - When love comes knock-knocking you might laugh or you might roll your eyes -- but if you know the punchline, it could be the start of something.
  • Hair, Shoes Coffee by Eleanor Kennedy of Chatham - A fun comedy piece requiring a lot of acting "in between the lines." Examines the morning rituals of a woman through the eyes of her male friend.
  • Badger and Maddy by Dianna Lewis of Montclair - A two-character comedy that shows us wisdom can come from unusual places.
  • In Reverse Order by Eric Alter of Livingston - "Well, I have an incredible porn collection." A guy, a gal, a blind date...Comedy ensues.
  • A Dog’s Life by Robert Scott Sullivan of Brick - The silly, exciting, adventure of a day with your dog.
  • Zarg by Walter Placzek of Monroe - The play is both funny and touching. Spirited, well-meaning people find love and connection in very difficult circumstances.
