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 Streetcar Named Desire”
By Tennessee Williams
Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning classic is considered one of the few 20th-century American plays that continue to have the same power and impact as when they first appeared.
The story famously recounts how the faded and promiscuous Blanche DuBois is pushed over the edge by her sexy and brutal brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. The play was adapted into an Oscar-winning movie in 1951 starring Marlon Brando, Vivian Leigh, Kim Hunter and Karl Malden.
NLT’s reading is directed by Penny Potenz Winship of Montclair.
The cast includes Ginny Crooks of Bloomfield as Blanche DuBois, Victor Gallo of North Caldwell as Stanley Kowalski, Stephen Crooks of Bloomfield as Mitch, and Jacqueline Schreiber of Parsippany as Stella Kowalski.
The performance will be held at 47 Erie Place, Nutley, NJ
Admission is free.
