Plays by East Brunswick Campus theater students featured by Crossroads
Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools theater students Ashley Kiser of Perth Amboy and Michael Villanueva of Woodbridge are among the playwrights who will be featured Friday, Nov. 4, as the Crossroads Theatre Company presents an evening of short plays about issues surrounding social justice.
“Social Justice: Genesis,” to be performed at 7 p.m. at Crossroads, 7 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick, features stage readings of plays written by “Repairing a Nation” playwright Nikkole Salters, Edith Oliver Award winner Rick Sordelet, and producing artistic director of Crossroads Marshall Jones III.
The two student plays are Michael Villanueva’s “Packing,” which explores childhood friendships and experiences between a Latino and black males, and Ashley Kiser’s “Another Hashtag,” about a couple going to the doctor to try to have a baby.
The reading will be followed by a town hall style discussion with community leaders.
