Beside our regular productions, NLT also presents Reader’s Theater, free events in which actors read from scripts for a unique appreciation of classic and contemporary works.
Originally developed by one of our area’s directors, Penny Potenz Winship, each play is carefully chosen to offer actors a creative challenge and the audience a creative experience.

“A COUPLA WHITE CHICKS SITTING AROUND TALKING” by John Ford Noonan
Nutley Little Theatre will present a Reader’s Theatre Production of “A COUPLA WHITE CHICKS SITTING AROUND TALKING” by John Ford Noonan.
The play is a touching comedy set in suburban Westchester in the late 1970’s. The plot: a pair of disparate neighbors, prudish Maude Mix, and earthy Hannah Mae Bindler, form a quirky friendship and join forces to bond against their errant and erring husbands. Through this exchange, the orderly, sanitized Maude becomes liberated as their alliance grows.
Written in 1978, the show ran for more than 800 performances Off-Broadway in 1979 and starred Susan Sarandon and Eileen Brennan.
Appearing in the reading will be Jacqueline Schreiber of Parsippany as Maude and Claudine Boucher of Lincoln Park as Hannah.
The piece will be directed by Don Sheffrin of Nutley.
The play contains adult content and is not suitable for anyone under 18.
Please note: An additional reading will be held at the Nutley Public Library on March 11, also at 2 pm.
The Play is produced in cooperation with Samuel French, Inc.
The performance will be held at 47 Erie Place, Nutley, NJ
Admission is free.
