Holiday Rom-Com “Joy Meets Girl”


Searching for Love

Holiday Readers Theatre Set for Stratford Library
Saturday, December 3rd at 2 p.m.
Free and Open to the Public

The Stratford Library will have a special holiday readers theatre event on Saturday, December 3rd at 2 p.m. in the Lovell Room.  A new play, “Joy Meets Girl” by Kimberly Hill, will be presented in a staged reading in the Library Lovell Room.  It is free and open to the public.

“Joy Meets Girl” is a Christmas screwball romantic comedy about a woman’s desperate search to find love in her hopelessly neurotic relationships and the truth of life – before wedding bells chime. She has 20 minutes.

Playwright Kimberly Hill has written for the TV series “Cheers, “Family Ties”, “On Day at a Time”, “Facts of Life”, “Empty Nest” and “It’s A Living” among many others.  She developed pilots for Paramount and, in New York, wrote a script for Macy’s NBC Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The cast for the Library reading includes Carolyn Savoia (Norwalk), Qesar Veliu (Shelton), Tom Rushen (Stratford), Richard Warren (Milford), Joan Barere (New Haven) and Sib Law (Stratford).  Law, who will direct the reading, is Co-Founder of SquareWrights Playwright Center, which has debuted hundreds of works by emerging playwrights. He is also a Featured Playwright of Alaska’s Last Frontier Theater Conference.

“Joy Meets Girl” is recommended for all ages.  General seating will be available beginning at 1:30 pm.
