Directed by Bill Connington, the evening benefits Safe Horizon, a charity that helps victims of domestic abuse (www.safehorizon.org). Show time is 7 PM.

D'Abruzzo is joined on stage by Barbara Walsh, Mary Stout, Janet Carroll and Bree Williamson as well as Abby Royle and Annmarie Benedict.

I Stand Before You Naked, according to press notes, "presents an extraordinary array of women oppressed by their husbands, their lovers, and themselves — a searing look at misplaced love, infidelity, prostitution, and the primal desire to be loved."

A discussion panel on the oppression of women, with Oates and experts from the John Jay College faculty, will take place prior to the performance.

Razors Edge Productions, Small Pond Entertainment and Sarah Melissa Rotker produce.

Ticket prices range $20-$30, with tickets for the post-show reception available for $35, and can be purchased by phone at (212) 352-3101 or online at https://www.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/789025.
