East Lynne Theater Company presents: Tales in the Backyard

Based on ELTC’s long-standing TALES OF THE VICTORIANS, this version was devised in 2020 due to the pandemic. We can’t offer you a cup of tea and homemade treats like usual when we perform at local B&Bs and shops, but performers are still reading stories by American authors, famous speeches, and one-act plays. Like last year, TALES are outside in a shaded backyard in Cape May. Performers use microphones. Reservations are required and may be made by calling 609-884-5898 or e-mailing When making a reservation, the location will be revealed. To see the 2021 schedule for Tales in the Backyard, visit

ELTC will adhere to whatever outdoor-mask-wearing rule is in place in NJ at the time, and ask that everyone sit where socially distanced seats have been cleaned and placed, until further notice. We’ll not be serving drinks and food, but you may bring a beverage and a snack. Restroom facilities are not available, until further notice.
