Playhouse 22 presents "The Niceties"

(EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- Playhouse 22 presents The Niceties, a play by Eleanor Burgess, across two weekends from Saturday, November 11 to Sunday, November 19, 2023. Part of the theater’s “On the Edge” black box series, The Niceties focuses on a conversation between a student and her professor as they debate on how American history is taught from varying different perspectives.

The show is directed by Uchenna Agbu with Elena Marie Abdou as “Janine” and Rachel Bland as “Zoe”.

Playhouse 22’s “On the Edge” provides theater-goers a different experience as the theater's stage is transformed into an intimate setting where both the audience and performers are seated on the stage where the focus is on the performers in the center of the action.

The show is for mature audiences.  

The Niceties runs November 11 – 19, 2023 with performances on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm and Sunday matinees at 2:00pm.  Audiences are invited to join the cast and crew after the Sunday, November 12 performance for a talk-back session to discuss the show. Limited tickets are available for $18 and must be purchased at Playhouse22.org or over the phone at 732-254-3939.

The theater is conveniently located at the Elliott Taubenslag Theater at the East Brunswick Community Arts Center, 721 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick, New Jersey.

Playhouse 22 is an all-volunteer run community theater located in Central Jersey.  Founded as the East Brunswick Community Players more than 60 years ago, the Players were theater "nomads" traveling throughout the region putting on shows wherever space was available.

​Twenty-two years after its founding, the Players, through a partnership with the Township of East Brunswick, moved into its first home -- "Playhouse 22".  The original Playhouse 22 was a mix of a nearly century old schoolhouse, a retired public works garage and trailer which served as its home until 2005.

In the early 2000's, the Playhouse 22 board was approached by the Township once again with the opportunity to vacate the theater in hopes of moving into a new state of the art Community Arts Center being designed down the street.  After a series of meetings and discussions, it was decided that the troupe was moving. After a longer-than-expected wait, the Players moved into the Arts Center in the fall of 2009 with "Neil Simon's The Odd Couple:  Female Version" opened in September 2009.
