RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- Ryan Pifher, the founder and artistic director of Porch Light Productions, will direct "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare" Sunday, July 17, at Ridgewood's Van Neste Square.

The 97-minute show features all 37 Shakespeare plays. The show is a fun comedy, an irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard's plays.

Ryan founded Porch Light Productions in April of 2005 and has worked as an actor, producer, director, writer, and technical engineer for over 10 years. He holds degrees from The American Musical and Dramatic Academy and The New School University, both located in New York City. 

His work has been showcased all across the United States and has appeared in many Off-Broadway, television, and film productions. His work was also chosen to perform for a Prejudice Education Festival sponsored by the governor of New Jersey. 

Ryan's wife, Jenn, oversees creative marketing and manages the day-to-day operations for PLP.
