Lori Petty to Direct Reading of TRIAL at MTC

Article Pixel

Thursday June 16th at 12:30pm, Lori Petty (Orange is the New Black, The Poker House, A League of Their Own) directs a reading of TRIAL - a new play by Ashley Griffin (creator of the pop culture phenomenon Forever Deadward) - at MANHATTAN THEATER CLUB (MTC Studios - 311 West 43rd St. 8th floor). Trial beautifully and movingly deals with the subject of child abuse. Please RSVP to asst@schwartzmcentyre.com.

Child molestation is sadly one of the most common, and most commonly unreported, crimes in our country. Guilt often assumed by the victim; the result is tragedy. At every reading almost every audience member has come up to Ashley and shared a story of how they, a family member, or friend experienced something similar to the main character Kay, and shared that they were grateful that Ashley was talking about this issue - which often gets ignored in commercial art for being dark and difficult of subject matter.

Cast to be announced soon.
