Lansdale’s Stove and Tap restaurant uses their multi-level space in a new way as Juniper Productions presents Philly Fringe “Cocktail Plays.”

At 8 p.m. Feb. 18, 6 and 8:30 p.m. Feb. 19 and 6 and 8:30 p.m. Feb. 20, see new one-act plays by area playwrights: “Blinders” by Alisha Adams, “Distill” by Josh Campbell, “What We Talk About” by Mark Costello and “Disclosure” by Bill D’Agostino (who is the education and communications director at Act II Playhouse in Ambler). The plays were originally presented during the 2017 Philly Fringe Festival at Philadelphia Distilling in Fishtown.

According to a press release from Juniper Productions, the associate producer of “Cocktail Plays,” Grayce Hoffman, proposed bringing the plays to Lansdale because of family ties. Her parents grew up in North Wales and Chalfont and her grandmothers live in Lansdale North Wales.

Directed by Marcia Ferguson, the production features Philadelphia actors Patrick Romano, Hoffman, and Taiwo Sokan performing multiple roles.

Stove and Tap is at 329 W. Main St., Lansdale. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, $30 for a ticket and “specialty cocktail.” The first 50 people who purchase the $30 “Four Plays and a Cocktail” package will also receive a free juniper-infused gift at the door. Guests are invited to arrive an hour before show time.
