TEANECK, N.J. -- The Garage Theatre Group is set to perform "Out of Sterno," a play, at the Becton Theatre from May 5-May 29.

The performances - to be held at the River Road theater - will be directed by Michael Bias, the group's artistic/producing director.

The show was written by Deborah Zoe Laufer, a playwright whose work has been performed across the United States and Canada as well as in Russia and Germany.

According to the theater group, the show focuses on the lives of Dotty and her husband, Hamel, while they live in Sterno.

In a statement, the theater group calls the play, "a wickedly funny" fairytale that follows Dotty's journey toward becoming a "real" woman.

The play is said to explore "the triumph and heartbreak of growing up and the contradictory societal pressures women face just tying to make it across town."

The performance, which may be inappropriate for children under the age of 13, is said to feature "some strong language."
