2 Scripts in Hand at Westport

Westport Country Playhouse’s popular Script in Hand Series will feature two autumn playreadings, Alan Ayckbourn’s Bedroom Farce on Monday, Oct.4 at 7 pm and Noël Coward’s A Song at Twilight on Monday, Nov. 15 at 7 pm. Tickets to the one-night-only events are $15.

Bedroom Farce will reunite Playhouse audience favorites Geneva Carr, Carson Elrod, Cecilia Hart, Karen Walsh, James Waterston and Paxton Whitehead who have starred in one or more of the three Ayckbourn comedies on the Playhouse stage: Relatively Speaking, Time of My Life and How the Other Half Loves. Mark Shanahan, another popular Playhouse regular, will also be in the cast. More casting for both readings will be announced soon.

Both readings will be directed by Anne Keefe, Playhouse artistic advisor, who co-directed with Joanne Woodward the Playhouse production of David Copperfield. She is a former Westport Country Playhouse artistic director.

The Script in Hand Series, bringing together professional actors to read works by master playwrights, started earlier this year as a continuation of the highly successful “Funny Mondays” and “The Classical Series,” produced by the Playhouse from 2005 through 2008. The Script in Hand Series is supported, in part, by the White Barn Program of the Lucille Lortel Foundation and the Newman’s Own Foundation.
