1812 Productions to Celebrate Valentine's Day with HATE MAIL, 2/10
1812 Productions continues its "1812's Funny Valentine" tradition with a staged reading of Bill Corbett and Kira Obolensky's comedy two-hander Hate Mail. A perfect alernative to the flowers-and-chocolates set, Hate Mail will feature Philadelphia theatre favorites, and real-life married couple, Jennifer Childs and Scott Greer. Alex Bechtel joins the evening at the piano, performing a tongue-in-cheeck selection of Valentine's Day standards.
A spoof of A.R. Gurny's Love Letters, Hate Mail tells the story of Preston, a spoiled rich kid from the Midwest, who meets his match in Dahlia, an angst-filled New York artist. Their worlds collide when Preston sends a complaint letter that gets Dahlia fired from her job, and then there's no turning back. Told through a series of letters, post-its, and other increasingly crazed correspondence, Hate Mail follows Preston and Dahlia's relationship as they move from hate to love, and then right back again.
1812 Productions' staged reading of Hate Mail will take place on Monday, February 10th at 8:30 at The Tin Angel, 20 S. 2nd Street in Old City. All tickets are $15 and can be purchased at www.tinangel.com or at 215-928-0770. Doors will open at 8:00 for general admission seating. Special reserved seating for Hate Mail is available with dinner reservations at Serrano Restaurant, located one flight below The Tin Angel. These reservations can also be made at www.tinangel.com or at 215-928-0770.
