New York City’s Marble Collegiate Church (above left) is located in the heart of Manhattan, near the Empire State Building (above right). Merrill Farnsworth’s stage work JEZEBEL’S GOT THE BLUES will receive its New York debut in The Puzzle: Marble’s Festival of New Work (2012). Let’s hope some inspired producers attend the performance and book the show for an Off-Broadway run!

This full-length play is a collection of stories and paintings inspired by characters and stories from the Old Testament — with improvised blues.


This year, 112 submissions were received from 17 states and Canada. Ten dramatic pieces and a dozen pieces of spoken word were carefully chosen to receive staged readings by professional actors and directors. These pieces originate from New York, Ohio, Georgia, Tennessee, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Canada.  Admission to the performances in The Puzzle is free. Produced by Brian Hampton, with Marya Spring Cordes returning as Artistic Director.
