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.

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.
