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.

If you goTickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and may be purchased by calling 845-252-7272 or visiting www.delawarevalleyartsalliance.org.

For information, contact Bizzy Coy, Program Director, bizzy@delawarevalleyartsalliance.org, 845-252-7576

The arts alliance's Spring Cultural Series continues with David Driver’s “Standards & Classics & Starsky (No Hutch)” on Saturday, May 12 at 8 p.m.; Lard Dog & The Band of Shy on Saturday, June 2 at 2 p.m.; and Sullivan County Chamber Orchestra’s “The Carnival’s in Town” on Sunday, June 10 at 2 p.m.

The activities of the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance are supported in part by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
