News   Ashley Directs Hinkle, Cunningham and Geer in Hortua's Thanksgiving/Christmas in Cape Cod Reading, July 28-30
 
Marin Hinkle, the Broadway (Electra) and Off-Broadway (Miss Julie) actress best known for her work on the television series "Once and Again" and "Two and a Half Men," will be one of the stars of Thanksgiving/Christmas by Joe Hortua, which will have a workshop at the Cape Cod Theatre Project in Falmouth, MA, July 28-30.

The show is directed by Christopher Ashley. In addition to Hinkle, the cast features John Cunningham (Counsellor-at-Law), Kevin Geer (Twelve Angry Men) Mia Barron, Mark Margolis, Rob Sedgwick (Bliss) , Jason Olazabal, Susan Greenhill, Maria Cellario and Jesse Perez. The play takes place in Main Line Philadelphia, where "in-laws and bi-racialism make for an especially spicy holiday season." The play was commissioned by The Cape Cod Theatre Project, and concludes the company's 2005 summer season.

The 11-year-old summer theatre festival briefly rehearses and offers polished readings of new works each July. The company is stationed in Falmouth in the southwest corner of Cape Cod, and performs out of The Falmouth Academy, a private school. Though the company never stages full productions and makes no bones about its plays being in a state of development, the season has become quite popular with the local populace.

CCTP was founded by artistic director Andrew Polk and Jim Bracchiatta. CCTP workshops which went on to full productions include Paula Vogel's The Mineola Twins (at the Roundabout Theatre Company), Ben Bettenbender's Vick's Boy (at Off-Broadway's Rattlestick Theatre Company), Joe Hortua's Between Us (Manhattan Theatre Club), David Schulner's The Infinite Ache (at Long Wharf Theatre), BFE by Julia Cho (Long Wharf Theatre; Playwrights Horizons), Paul Grellong's Manuscript (now Off-Broadway) and John Cariani's Almost, Maine, due Off-Broadway next season.
