New York City-based theater company, Hang A Tale, concludes its Spring Reading Series, featuring Michael Shannon in Sam Shepard's Curse of the Starving Class.

Hang A Tale (www.hangatale.org) was nominated for an Off-Broadway Alliance Award for its production of Antoine De Saint-Exupery's The Little Prince at the Pearl Theater. Past productions include William Shakespeare's A Winter's Tale; Harold Pinter's The Dumb Waiter; and Insignificance, in collaboration with London's Defibrillator Theatre Company.

Two-time Academy Award nominee, Tony nominee, Lucille Lortel nominee, and Drama Desk winner Michael Shannon (Long Day's Journey Into Night, Loving, Boardwalk Empire) will star in Sam Shepard's Curse of the Starving Class.
