The reading will feature Bill Connington. Additional actors will be announced shortly. "Raising questions about art and friendship," the Tony-winning comedy, according to press notes, "concerns Serge, a collector of modern art, and his friends Marc and Yvan. When Serge buys an expensive painting that Marc hates, their relationship suffers while they struggle to define what makes something art. Yvan, caught in the middle, tries to please them both. Anyone who has visited a contemporary art exhibit will be challenged and exhilarated by the debate."
Bill Connington is the creator and star of Zombie, adapted from the novella by Joyce Carol Oates. His short films of "Zombie" and "The Thornhills of Park Avenue" are currently appearing on the film festival circuit. The full-length feature of "Zombie" is slated for production in May 2012.
