The evening at The Dalton School, which begins at 6 PM, will feature the acting talents of Quincy Tyler Bernstine, Kate Jennings Grant, Matthew Greer, Joseph Grifasi and Daphne Rubin-Vega. Charlie Polinger will direct.
The one-act, according to press notes, "addresses the moral distress of a young physician working hard amid divisions posed by class, race, and a broken health care system."
Margulies won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for his Dinner With Friends. Two other plays, Sight Unseen and Collected Stories, were Pulitzer finalists. His The Country House played on Broadway in 2014. Following the performance of July 7, 1994, there will be a discussion panel with Margulies and director of the Montefiore Einstein Center for Bioethics, Dr. Tia Powell. Light refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
All profits will go toward scholarship funds for students who have the drive and academic ability, but not the financial means, to pursue graduate education in bioethics. The Dalton School is located at 108 East 89th Street. For tickets, priced $100 (general) and $30 (full-time students with ID), visit www.montefiore.org/playreading.
