The reading of the Cybele Pascal play will be held at 7 PM at the Ars Nova Theater. Directed by Jonathan Bernstein, the cast is set to include Jordan Charney, Jane Houdyshell, Judith Roberts, Sarah Wilson and Barbara Eda Young. According to production notes, the drama concerns "a widowed New England professor [who] is whisked away to a fancy Miami hotel by his daughter and granddaughter. Little does he realize that rest and relaxation are far from his family's minds as they scheme to set him up with one of the many rich old ladies swarming about the resort." A 2002-2003 Playwright-in-Residence at the Juilliard School in New York City, Cybele Pascal's other plays include The Erotic Nature of Funerals, Party Lines, The Allegory of Painting, Marlena Sits and Girlplay.
