Directed by David Glenn Armstrong, the reading of the two one-act comedies will boast the talents of Oscar and Golden Globe Award winner Olympia Dukakis, Emmy Award nominee Louise Lasser, Tony Award nominee Louis Zorich, Jessica Stone and Michael Citriniti.

Dukakis and Zorich, who recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, star in Getting Lucky (winner, New Voice Play Festival), which is described as "a tender comedy about a woman about to have sex for the first time in eighteen years, and a man who wants more than her body."

Mourning Glory (winner, Civic Theatre New Play Contest) stars Lasser and her real-life partner Citriniti in an "irreverent romp which explores the question, 'How long should you wait before you diddle your late partner’s widow?'"

Stone appears in both plays as a catalyst to her elders’ amours.

Robin Lane-Krauss hosts. Graham Powell will read the stage directions. Jenny Leon is the assistant director.
