Staged Reading Of PASTIME winner of this season’s

Page-To-Stage Playwriting Contest

Monday September 8th at 7:30PM  Admission Free



Playwright, Geoff Michaels, is a native of New Jersey, born in Plainfield. He attended school in Newark and studied at New York University. He says: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to have this play read at the Cloverdale Playhouse.How terrific it is that new work is supported and encouraged. ”

His play, PASTIME, is set in the late 1980′s in a large middle-class suburban/metropolitan neighborhood near New York City. It tells the story of a close-knit family dealing with the loss of the father and the subsequent battle over keeping the family house.


This is the second year of the Page-To-Stage Series at the Cloverdale Playhouse.Plays are submitted for consideration for all over the country.Scripts are given a “blind” reading in which no writers names are known, the the top three are selected and from that group a winner is chosen.
