The Ridgefield Theater Barn will present a staged reading of the original play Too Early for Crickets, by Marlene Fanta Shyer, on Tuesday, March 28, at 7 p.m.
A successful professional couple are doing their best to raise two teenage daughters. Their efforts are challenged by a shady ex-boyfriend, whose intrusive and forbidding presence is a constant threat. When one of the girls becomes pregnant, the boyfriend’s parents become involved. The differing opinions on how to resolve the problem create tension, humor and dissension that threaten to destroy the girl’s family.
