The original play Two Pair and Jacks Are Wild will be read at the Strand Theater Gallery, Lakewood, Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5.

The Playwrights Series features original works of local playwrights and consists of actors reading a play from scripts. After the reading, the floor is open to guests for questions and discussions about the plot and characters. The discussion aids the writer and director in future productions of the play.

Two Pair and Jacks Are Wild, by Mike Quirk, tells the tale of $9 million, five couples, three stamps and an odd man out at an Inn on an island off the coast of New Jersey. Quirk is a former radio personality who is currently teaching performing arts at a middle school in Middlesex Borough.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by calling (732) 367-7789 or at www.strandlakewood.com.

Help needed for new

thrift shop in Jackson

The Kimball Medical Foundation is asking for the community’s help with plans to open a new thrift shop in Jackson this fall. Romeo’s Plaza shopping center on South New Prospect Road will be the site of the shop. The foundation is seeking donations of hangers, clothing racks, shelves, filing cabinets, lockers and general office supplies to get the shop up and running. The shop will offer bargains and selections on new and lightly used items.

The hospital’s two existing thrift shops, Lots for Little in Lakewood and The Treasure Chest in Lakehurst, have been open for many years. Volunteers accept donations, mark them for resale, and help customers, Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Proceeds from the shops benefit the Kimball Medical Foundation.

For more information on volunteering, call (732) 886-4148 or visit www.kimball-foundation.org.
