Catherine Curtin, Gordon Joseph Weiss and More to Lead DAD MIGHT'VE KILLED THAT GIRL Reading at Cherry Lane Theatre
Cherry Lane Theatre's Tongues Reading Series will present a staged reading of Dad Might've Killed That Girl, a new play by Lindsay Joy (The Rise and Fall of a Teenage Cyberqueen), December 11th on the MainStage at The Cherry Lane Theatre.
Jenna Worsham (Street Children) will direct a cast that includes Catherine Curtin (Stranger Things, Orange Is The New Black) Gordon Joseph Weiss (Fool For Love, Scarcity), Elise Kibler (Napoli, Brooklyn), Eric T. Miller (Mope), Kara Young (Syncing Ink), and Chris Hawthorn.
The play concerns Patrick, Richard, and Carol as they all gather at their family's broken old farmhouse in New Hampshire in the bitter early spring. It's judgment day for their father- who is accused of a brutal murder. Booze is guzzled and loyalties are tested in a play that questions who we choose to protect and why.
Admission is free but reservations are encouraged. To reserve a ticket, email DadMightveKilledThatGirl@gmail.com. Reservations will be honored until five minutes before show time.
