(UNION, NJ) – Premiere Stages at Kean University, in partnership with the Matheny Medical and Educational Center, presented Plays by People, an evening of original works by the talented playwrights of Matheny’s Arts Access Program, on March 28 at the Robert Schonhorn Arts Center in Peapack. The free event, presented as part of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance’s annual Stages Festival, featured staged readings of six short plays written by Arts Access playwrights and performed by professional actors. The playwrights – all adults with medically complex developmental disabilities – were an integral part of the staging process, offering direct feedback to the actors on how to best present their written work, and in some cases appearing in the plays themselves. The plays presented were In a Box by Natalia Manning, Angels in Heaven by Jessica Evans, Jeff and Marie by Amanda Kochell, Tatianna’s Play by Tatyana Manousakis, Search for the Sun by Cheryl Chapin, and Bear Play by Cindy Shanks....
