I’m delighted to share that I’m going to be playing multiple juicy roles in a staged reading of a fascinating new fact-based play about apartheid called A Question of Country by the supremely talented Janet Neipris. Janet is head of graduate screenwriting and playwrighting at NYU, and has turned out a host of wonderful writers in her many years there. Janet went to South Africa and lived with one of the two women her play is based on, so she’s writing what she knows in a very powerful way.
The reading is being directed by the wonderful Susan Einhorn, who has headed the acting program at Queens College for 25 years, and recently completed her term as department chair. Her professional relationship with Janet has spanned many years and many plays.
On top of it all, we have a wonderful cast, including my dear friend Anne Marie Cusson; we haven’t seen each other since the five months we spent together last winter playing down at Asolo Rep. It’s so great when people I love working with come back into my orbit!
There are only two performance of this free staged reading:
Monday, May 4th at 7pm at Theatre for the New City
Tuesday, May 5th at 7pm at the Colden Auditorium at Queens College
If you’re free either evening, come see our reading of this compelling tale!
