BESPOKE PLAYS - a bicoastal production company - will present an industry reading of SUPPER by Phinneas Kiyomura on Sunday, February 16th. Completing the cast are Josh Adam Ramos (Chicken and Biscuits), Alexander Sanders (Pip's Island), and Emily Gardner Xu Hall (I Am This For You).

SUPPER is August: Osage County through the lens of The Lieutenant of Inishmore, following four ultra-rich and estranged siblings who are definitely not based on the Koch brothers. As they reunite in Japan on the eve of the eldest brother's wedding, what follows is a savage feast of lies, recriminations, and bitter truths served with a side of jet-black humor.
The reading will take place on Sunday, February 16th, at 7pm at Manhattan Theatre Club Studios (311 W 43rd St, 8th Fl). Light refreshments will be provided, and the reading will be followed by a short reception. Reservations may be made by visiting http://www.bespokeplays.com/supper. Literary managers, artistic directors, and commercial producers are especially encouraged to join us for this production-ready piece.
