Award winning, local playwright Noemi de la Puente teams up with SAVE - A Friend to Homeless Animals, for an imaginative fundraising event to support both Dramatic Question Theatre (DQT) in New York City, and SAVE- A Friend to Homeless Animals in Skillman, NJ.
Ms. de la Puente will present a reading of scenes from her latest work THE PET PLAY - a comedy that explores the relationship between pet owners, their pets, and each other. THE PET PLAY is being developed by DQT, a playwright driven theatre company. Ms. de la Puente approached SAVE because of the subject matter of the play: pets and pet owners. “I’m thrilled with SAVE’s work in the community. I’m grateful they have embraced this unusual partnership. It’s not the usual combination - theatre companies and animal shelters. Two of the characters in the play are the dog and the cat that belong to the leading couple. So it’s a perfect fit to have a reading here, and raise money for both organizations.”, says Ms. de la Puente
SAVE’s Volunteer Coordinator Anna Finch, “We’ve never done this before, but we are excited that Ms. de la Puente thought of SAVE. It’s a unique opportunity to get people here to see our beautiful new facility, take a tour, hear a play reading, and possibly take the first step towards adopting a pet.”
Funds that are raised will support the SAVE animal shelter and DQT’s production of “The Pet Play” in New York City, slated for February 2018. SAVE and DQT are both non-profit501 (c) 3 organizations. Can’t make it because you will be out of town? Be there in spirit by following the ticket link to make a donation.

Join us for a public reading of Leah Franqui's play:
THE RABBIT AND THE TIGER!
THE RABBIT AND THE TIGER follows Elena, a Puerto Rican woman who is visiting the island for the funeral of her grandfather. Unable to deal with her grief and uncomfortable under the attentions of her concerned fiancée, Javier, Elena disappears into the mythical world of the jungle of her childhood, a land she played with and inhabited when her grandfather was still alive. But the jungle is a dangerous place, and Elena finds herself caught in the struggle for power between two ancient enemies, the slick jokester, Mr. Rabbit, and the vicious and angry Mr. Tiger.
