GREENWICH – Kick off the holiday season with ‘An Evening with Friends at the Theater’, an entertaining and comedic evening of live drama readings in the redesigned Berkley Theater in Greenwich Library.

Professional actors from JIB Productions will share their vacation show “Seasons Readings”, starting at 7:00 pm on December 2nd.

The stage production is offered free of charge, thanks to contributions from the nonprofit Friends of Greenwich Library.

A discussion and Q&A session with JIB Productions Artistic Director Carole Schweid and professional cast of actors will immediately follow the performance.


The evening will consist of short stories and one-act plays in the spirit of the holiday season. The program features playwright Matt Hoverman’s comedy “Going Home”, the story of two newlyweds trying to make the most of their first Christmas alone in their tiny apartment.

Other stories include “The Curmudgeon” by Minnesota writer and National Book Award winner Pete Hautman, a piece of memory that brings together a motley team of adult children to spend the holidays with their dads; “The Gloucester Tailor” by famous author Beatrix Potter; and “A Christmas Ballad for the Captain” by William Lederer.
