Connell, a member of the Ars Nova Play Group, authored the play about a haunted research scientist. Giovanna Sardelli, who directed the world premieres of Rajiv Joseph' The North Pool, Animals Out of Paper and All This Intimacy, will direct the free 7 PM reading.
Joining Bergl (Becky Shaw; Love, Loss, and What I Wore) are Arjun Gupta, Gretchen Hall (Cymbeline, The Circle) and Carra Patterson (Measure for Measure, All's Well That Ends Well).
According to Ars Nova, "Research scientist Amy Garmey isn't seeing funding, and she isn't seeing results, but she is seeing a ghost. With a mentor who's her rival, a rival who's her boyfriend, and a best friend who's a dead scientific celebrity, Amy's on the brink of madness. Or, the scientific method."
