Will Frears directs the Academy Award-winning actress, who snagged her Oscar for "The Piano." She also appeared in the two "X-Men" pictures and starred Off-Broadway in Rebecca Gilman's The Glory of Living. The play is billed this way: "On a long Texas night, awaking from what seems like a nightmare, dropout Wade ponders cliff diving, parents and the future."
The Drug Buddy reading cast also includes Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Shane McRae and Matthew Stadelmann.
Each reading of the open-to-the-public series takes place on a Monday night at 6 PM on the 8th floor of Manhattan Theatre Club's Creative Center, 311 W. 43rd Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.
