The B Street Theatre is pleased to present the world premiere of HEAR THE GRASS GROW, written and directed by Producing Artistic Director Buck Busfield. This touching contemporary comedy is the fourth show in the B Street Theatre's seven-show, 2008-2009 mainstage season.

Busfield has worked for the B Street Theatre since its creation in 1986. In his over twenty-year tenure, he has directed more than 100 productions and has penned over two dozen original scripts.

HEAR THE GRASS GROW continues the B Street Theatre's tradition of producing an original, new play for the holidays each year. Busfield's previous original holiday scripts include AND TO ALL A GOODNIGHT, MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY and THROWING PARTIES.

HEAR THE GRASS GROW features David Pierini as Ernie Putalik, along with fellow B Street Theatre Acting Company members Elisabeth Nunziato, Stephanie McVay and Ed Claudio.
