Delaware Valley Arts Alliance presents the award-winning playwright and actor Richard Hoehler in "E.," a new solo storytelling performance in the style of Spalding Gray, on Saturday, April 28 at 8 p.m. at the Tusten Theatre, 210 Bridge Street, Narrowsburg, N.Y.

An accolade to Hoehler’s longtime mentor and friend Edith "E." Speziali, the evening explores their friendship with honesty, affection, irreverent wit, and a few choice cuss words.

The pair first met when 27-year-old Hoehler was a budding actor, who moved to the city, and 60-six-year-old Edith was already a classic New York character with a spiky personality and vocabulary to match.

Local audiences may remember Hoehler in the riches-to-rags play “I of the Storm,” which was presented at Tusten Theatre in 2015 before debuting Off-Broadway last year.

The winner of the OOBR Award for Best Solo Performance, Hoehler is also the founder of “Me Myself and I,” a theatre residency where actors and writers create their own solo pieces, and “Acting Out,” a professional acting class for at-risk youth and the incarcerated, which is currently in residency at Otisville State Prison.

His other solo work includes “Working Class,” “Human Resources” and “New Jersey/New York.”

This performance is the first event in arts alliance’s Spring Cultural Series.
