As part of their continued commitment to develop new local works, Stow Players will present "Caught Up in a Moment" on March 27 at 7:30 p.m.

The play is written and directed by Brian Westerley. The story follows Chris, a 28-year-old actor, in his most difficult role yet - that of a love-struck secret admirer. Braden, the object of Chris's hidden affection, torments Chris with mixed signals about his sexuality. Needing a new kind of "director," Chris consults friends Penny and Linda to plot out how he should handle his crush. Due to Chris's inability to actually approach Braden to simply ask him out - and with many unanswered questions - Chris spirals out of control. Finally, Chris hits a turning point in his quest and confronts Braden. What happens next is not what you would expect. With an hilarious cast of characters, "Caught Up in a Moment" explores just how far some will go to find success, love and themselves.

The play stars Michael Knobloch, Nathan Hach, Chelby Benson, Tom Barnes, Beth Gaiser and Tom Stephan. There will be a talkback after the performance in order for the writer to hear ideas and continue to develop the script.

It will be presented at the Stow Players, 5238 Young Road in Stow. Admission is free and open to the public.
