Actors Elaine Bromka and Reathel Bean will examine that age-old question about life, “What does it all mean?” in two performances at the Ocean County Library in July.
They will weave together writings by modern wits Neil Simon, Garrison Keillor, Erma Bombeck, George Carlin, Nora Ephron, Thorton Wilder, Judith Viorst, Alfred Uhry, Herb Gardner, Pete Seeger and others in pursuit of the answer.
Like all good quests the pathways are marked with both humor and serious rumination. Characters created by the writers are brought together, interacting and questioning each other. Will their answers be the same as yours?
Bromka and Bean will perform at the Toms River branch, 101 Washington St., Monday July 23 at 7 p.m. and the Island Heights branch Monday July 30 at 7 p.m.
All these programs are offered free and are open to the public but registration is required. For more information or to register for any of these programs telephone the operator at (732) 349-6200 or (609) 971-0514, or visit the library Web site www.theoceancountylibrary.org .
