A Good Farmer @ SOPAC, One Sopac Way, South Orange

A Good Farmer takes place in upstate New York and focuses on two women: Bonnie who owns a farm with her husband; and Carla, a recent immigrant from Mexico who works the farm along with members of her family. Ripped from today’s headlines, this is the story of a farming community and its struggles with issues of immigration, loyalty, family, survival and compassion. Sharyn Rothstein has artfully managed to reveal the humanity behind some of today’s contentious political issues. This World Premiere play is presented from January 24 through February 4th.

Harvey @ Algonquin Arts, 173 Main Street, Manasquan

To avoid future embarrassment for her family - and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae - Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother. The truth comes out, however; Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. This Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy is presented from January 27 through February 3.
