T.J. Elliott's latest play, Keeping Right, a screwball comedy set in 1967 Stockholm opens on Zoom on December 3rd. Co-author with Joe Queenan of Alms, a one-acter staged as Equity Showcase May 2019 at TheaterLab, and Grudges, a 9 performance Zoom production in July of 2020, T.J. is co-founder of Knowledge Workings Theater. His 1983 play -- Lazy Eye— was staged twice at Warren Robertson’s Studio Theatre. In the early 80s, T.J. studied with Terry Schreiber and Jill Andre while also writing, directing, and producing Captive Audiences in two smash Off-Off Broadway revue successes. He also appeared as an actor regionally in The Devil’s Disciple (Reverend Anthony Anderson), Sexual Perversity in Chicago (Bernie), and The Dumbwaiter (Ben). In the ensuing decades, he has directed and acted among casts of thousands in a mélange of corporate telenovelas and organizational performance art. A proud Dramatists Guild member, he lauds his family -- Marjorie, Gifford, Rosalind, Jay, Claire, Evan, and Lila -- for their unflagging support .
