Joel Stone's The Calling opens the third season of the Stage Exchange series of new-play readings presented by NJPAC in collaboration with the New Jersey Theatre Alliance. Cutting-edge play development meets insightful community dialogue at the Stage Exchange , a collaboration of three professional New Jersey theaters and a talented trio of Garden State playwrights. Following readings and Q&As related to each work at the Stage Exchange , world premiere productions are staged by each dramatist’s partner theater. In The Calling , Charles, a mysterious stranger, attends funeral services at a Somerset, N.J. church presided over by the venerable Father Dan. He learns that Charles is a nurse and the deceased was his patient. But Father Dan gradually discovers that Charles is a troubled soul and that nursing may not be his only calling.
