The Black Box Presents: Toms River Anthology, a New Comedy by Alexis Kozak
Location: Pure Health Bar, 710 Cookman Avenue, 2nd floor
Description: The Black Box Asbury Park presents a reading of Toms River Anthology, a new comedy by Alexis Kozak, on Sunday, March 10th, at 2:00pm, at Pure Health Bar, 701 Cookman Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ. Consisting of four scenes, each set in a Toms River cemetery and centered around a different pair of characters (newlyweds, a gay couple, a brother and sister, and a divorcing husband and wife), the play creates an interwoven patchwork that is a meditation on death in New Jersey and toys with the question of why we pass through Toms River, but why Toms River won’t just goddamn die?!
The play takes its title from the iconic American classic Spoon River Anthology, a book of interrelated poems by Edgar Lee Masters. “I spent a lot of time in Toms River as a kid at my aunt’s house, which I loved. At the same time, I heard people around me trashing the town. So, I grew up with, literally, a love-hate relationship with the place,” says playwright Kozak. “I’m trying to do it justice—show both sides—and play with some existential dilemmas as well.”
So please join us Sunday for this month's selection in our monthly reading series!
