The 8 PM reading, which is the final offering of The Neighborhood Playhouse's Fall Play Reading Festival, will feature Courtney De Cosky in the title role with Evan McNamara, Rita Baumsten, Meghan Kulig, Michael Hovance, Heather McNamara and Thor Edgell. Richard Perloff directs.
Hedda Gabler, according to press notes, "centers on the fate of a woman dangerously ahead of her time. The return of Eilert Lovborg, a former lover, sets into motion a series of events that will forever change the lives of the independent Hedda and those around her."
The Neighborhood Playhouse is located at 415 Paseo Del Mar in Palos Verdes Estates, CA 90274. There is a $10 suggested donation at the door. Reservations can made by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Neighborhood Playhouse season will include Charles Busch's Our Leading Lady (Feb. 19-March 8, 2009) and Barry Harman and Keith Herrmann's musical Romance/Romance (July 9-26).
