A Staged Reading Of QUITTING TIME To Be Performed 2/15
by BWW News Desk - Jan 21, 2009

Playhouse on the Green, a 54-year-old not-for-profit theater company in residence at a beautiful 228-seat jewel-box theater in the heart of downtown Bridgeport, presents a staged reading of Quitting Time, a new dramatic play by Jack Rushen, on Sunday, February 15 at 7PM. The reading is part of the 'Page to Stage' New Play Reading Series, an ongoing Playhouse program that supports Connecticut playwrights and introduces audiences to their latest creations. An audience talkback with Rushen moderated by 'Page to Stage' Series curator Mark S. Graham takes place following the reading. The cast includes Bob Adrian of New York City, Frank Piazza of Bridgeport, Guy A. Fortte of Bridgeport, Richard Weidlich of Greenwich, and Cindy Hannah of Wilton. Mark S. Graham directs. Quitting Time is the story of Charlie Valesky, a sixty-year-old foreman in a helicopter factory. As his company waits for a stalled government contract, Charlie may lose his job. His workers don't respect him, retirement age is looming, and he is haunted by the memory of his only son who was killed in the World Trade Center. After his wife dies, Charlie's one desperate need is to hold on to his job. As intense feelings of anxiety haunt him, the play asks the question 'Will Charlie ever find peace?' Quitting Time examines the fragility of the 'American Dream', the desperate need we all have for respect, and the powerless feeling of trying in vain to make sense of tragedies we can do very little about.
