Playwright Patricia Kozitsky tells a fictional account of her life as writer and cupcake hawker in Tales From the Oven: The Absolutely True Confessions of a Bakery Counter Girl, set to open at the Nuyorican Poetry Cafe on Dec. 6.

Kozitsky once slaved behind the counter of a pastry shop while publishing poetry, penning plays and nurturing her dreams of dental insurance, Mr. Right and escape from the workaday world. These real-life experiences (with which many another theatre artists can probably well identify) translated into Tales from the Oven, which was given a workshop at the 78th St. Theatre Lab.

Comedian and actor Jim Gaffigan ("Welcome to New York") saw that workshop and decided to co-direct it with Karen Small at the East Village's Nuyorican.

Karen Christie-Ward, Michelle Hurst, Susan Isaacs, Jeremy Peter Johnson  and Jeannie Noth, as the Kozitsky character, star. The production runs through Dec. 22.

Tickets are $5. For more information, call (212) 252-4370. —By Robert Simonson
