One of them will be Keith Bunin, who’s written several plays, including “The World Over,” “A Joke” and “The King of Clocks.”

His latest is called “Sam Bendrix at the Bon Soir,” which will be performed July 1 through July 3 at the Susan Stein Shiva Theater.

The play is set in a smoky Greenwich Village nightclub in 1958. The only character is a singing bartender, who is played by Luke Macfarlane.

“He begins telling about his life. He’s someone who is thinking very seriously about leaving New York, and he’s had a lot of setbacks,” Bunin said.

“It’s sort of fun because the audience gets to play the role of an audience back in 1958. The audience is very much a character in the piece.”
