Pop Up PARK(ing) For People
East State Street, Doylestown
All day event (continues into Saturday)
Imagine a greener, more people-friendly space in place of the ubiquitous asphalt parking spaces in Doylestown – if only for two days. This is exactly what a group of designers, artists, residents and students from Temple University, are doing in the form of a pop-up park, which will honor a worldwide event known as PARK(ing) Day. This mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat – at least until the meter runs out!

Caught in the Net
Town and Country Players, 4158 York Road, Buckingham
A sequel to Run For Your Wife finds the two-timing taxi driver John Smith keeping his two families in different parts of London, both happy and blissfully unaware of each other. That all changes when the girl from one family and the boy from the other meet on the internet and are anxious to meet in person since they both have the same last name and a taxi-driving dad! Keeping them apart plunges John into trouble of his own making. John enlists the aid of his pal, the not-so-bright Stanley Gardner, who brings along his father. The result is confusion, lying and all sorts of craziness.
