Bumps in the Road

R-UTN member Judy Bensimon invites everyone to enjoy the Township Theater Group’s Touring Company’s 17th season, Bumps in the Road.

This group of original short plays, both comic and upbeat, is about people embarking on what they hope will be a journey to  happiness… or  romance…or an exciting new relationship. It is no surprise that stumbling blocks and unexpected challenges are encounter along the way.

This season’s five plays will be preformed at area libraries during October, November and December. A schedule of performances can be found on our   events page or by visiting the Township Theater Group’s web page. 

The Boat People  by Frank Shima   When Sam tries to be a “real Minnesota outdoorsman” on his first date with Liz, they end up marooned in a rowboat on a very empty lake.

Voices  by  Marcia Slatkin  A railroad station may be an odd place to seek solace but different folks need different strokes. 

Trail Mix  by  Patrick Sherrard    Uptight Daisy shows up for a date with “rockstar” Denny but he has to convince her that going on a hike with him is a good idea.

The Chat  by Jim Azzara A kindly priest, trying to counsel a very angry married couple, invites a newly engaged couple to join the conversation as a reminder of  love. 

The Blind Tasting  by Linda Delmonico Prussen  Bernie is thrilled with a birthday gift of a trip to France, until he finds out the itinerary.
