On April 12, 2014, Sir Alan Ayckbourn, one of the most produced playwrights in the English language, celebrates his 75th birthday. To mark the event, some of his most loyal New Jersey-based theater artists are presenting AYCKBOURN AT 75: A THEATICAL BIRTHDAY PARTY. The show will trace his remarkable life and career featuring excerpts from such plays as THE NORMAN CONQUESTS, ABSURD PERSON SINGULAR and BEDROOM FARCE as well as songs from BY JEEVES, a collaboration between Ayckbourn and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. With special permission from Sir Alan, the show will also feature a scene from Ayckbourn's very first play, THE SQUARE CAT, which is unpublished and unavailable for performance.

Mooney, who studied theatre-in-the-round with Ayckbourn at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, England. Mooney has directed ten of the author's plays in the Garden State, including four American premieres. (more...)
