An industry reading of Jarlath Barsanti-Jacobs' new play Lunch at Audrey's will be presented September 29 at 3 PM at the Linney Theatre at Signature Theatre Company (480 W. 42nd Street).
Kristen Coury will direct.
The reading will feature Claire Brownell (The 39 Steps), Vanessa Morosco (Around the World in 80 Days at The New Theater) and Stephen Stocking (The Bully at Bleecker Street Theater).
“Step back into 1960 and join Audrey Hepburn in her famed Switzerland chalet,” according to press notes. “The anticipated lunch guests are Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti, but with the snow storm raging outside, will it be possible? Amid fears about her pregnancy, her husband's fidelity and her reservations about playing a call girl in Breakfast At Tiffany's, 30-year-old Audrey shares her thoughts on her career, her life, and her hopes for her future. Gathered from true events, this imagined afternoon allows us a glimpse into the private life of one of history's most iconic stars in a mesmerizing and intimate piece."
