On Thursday, December 20th at 4:00 p.m., everyone who took an ornament will meet for a special holiday party at Off-Broadway in order to spend time with the “adopted grandparent.” Everyone has a great time at this event— please consider joining the fun.

The Girl Before by JP Delaney
Monday, January 21 at 7:00 p.m.
The Girl Before is a 2017 suspense novel by British author Tony Strong, written under the pseudonym J.P. Delaney. The novel centers on a mysterious apartment, One Folgate Street, where anyone applying to live there must answer a single, oddly intrusive question: “Please make a list of every possession you consider essential to your life.” The book is the story of two women whose narratives unfold in different timelines. Emma is seeking a new place to live after a traumatic break-in, is won over by the beautiful apartment, and is willing to acquiesce to the bizarre rules set by the enigmatic architect who built the house. Jane, meanwhile, moves into One Folgate Street after a personal tragedy, and is drawn to the building’s aloof but charming creator. However, she soon finds out about the mysterious death of the home’s previous tenant, and winds up being pulled into the same traps herself.
Exploring themes of control, fate, and the way predators lure people into their webs, The Girl Before received positive reviews for its tense, suspenseful narrative and frequent plot twists. It is currently being adapted as a major motion picture to be directed by Ron Howard.
