David Staller, the acclaimed singer-actor who has produced and directed all of the Project Shaw offerings, will continue to do so for the upcoming reading.
The play, according to press notes, concerns "an estranged mother and daughter [who] wrestle to answer that question on a hot summer weekend. This most controversial of Shaw’s plays boldly tackles issues still vibrantly in current debate: roles of men and women in society, finance, sexuality, family dynamics, and most surprisingly, prostitution."
Project Shaw events for 2013 also include Too True To Be Good (June 24); On the Rocks (July 22); Shaw with Ibsen's League of Youth (Sept. 16); Shaw with Wilde's short stories (Oct. 21); Shaw with Chekhov's short stories (Nov. 18); and Super Shaw (Dec. 16).
Past participants include Blair Brown, Mark Kudisch, Kerry Butler, Tyne Daly, Jonathan Hadary, Daniel Jenkins, Rebecca Luker, Michael Cerveris, Karen Ziemba, Michele Pawk, Bruce Vilanch, Jack Gilpin and George S. Irving.
The Players Club is located in Manhattan at 16 Gramercy Park South. Tickets, priced $30, are available by calling (212) 352-3101. For more information visit www.projectshaw.com.
