Timepiece, according to press notes, "follows John Kirby who is on the run from his past. Between New York City and a small town in the suburbs, he has been working hard to forget an unloving father, an absent mother, and a life of underachievement. All is going according to plan when a sudden crisis forces him to address the past and work towards the future."
Playwright Bartolone and producers Tim Whitfield, Craig & Ann Major and TIMEPIECE LLC used crowdsourcing to fundraise for the reading. The financial goal was met and exceeded in 72 hours.
