|Love, Death, and Bingo are the themes highlighted in the three vignettes that will be presented during the 2nd annual Dinner Theater sponsored by The Arc of Rensselaer County. Guests will have their choice of attending the Dinner Theater on the evenings of March 25 or March 26 at Moscatiello’s in North Greenbush.|
Joe Starzyk, local award-winning playwright, wrote the three vignettes that will be presented. The first, “Instant Harmony,” is when a lonely romantic allows his best friend to talk him into letting a computer help him find romance. Surely nothing could go wrong! The second, “Death: Who’s Coming to Dinner” asks the question, will you be ready when Death comes calling? Will Death be ready for you?. And finally, to round out the evening, “Bingo: The Last True Blood Sport” is a look behind the cutthroat world of nursing home Bingo!
“The three short plays are part of a larger collection of short plays I’ve written. They have been performed in venues all over the country and soon to be in Europe,” explained Starzyk, who is also employed with The Arc of Rensselaer County. He added, “It has been very gratifying to share my passion for playwriting in a way that has been able to benefit the individuals we serve.”
The Arc of Rensselaer County is one of the largest employers in Rensselaer County with a mission to advocate for and provide invaluable resources to nearly 800 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
