Lauren Casey Hayes and Adam Blanshay will present free readings of Steve Galluccio's In Piazza San Domenico Feb. 8 at 7 PM and Feb. 9 at 11 AM at the Soho Playhouse in Manhattan.

The readings, directed by Blanshay, will feature the cast of the play's world-premiere production, which was presented by the Centaur Theatre Company in Montreal: Carl Alacchi, Christina Broccolini, Guido Cocomello, Ellen David, Mara Lalli, Michel Perron, Vittorio Rossi and Jocelyn Zucco. In Piazza San Domenico is described in press notes as a "light-hearted and thoroughly entertaining comedy about love, lust and misunderstandings, inspired by Feydeau, Goldini and Sophia Loren. It's a burning hot August in Naples, 1952 - 'earthquake weather' and the citizens of Piazza San Domenico are all stirred up when Carmelina Benevento suddenly faints upon hearing some bad news about her fiancé, Guido. A series of conspicuous sightings between people provoke gossip. Misinterpretations ensue as the players contrive their own schemes and desperately try to keep face. But love and earth tremors have a way of setting things straight."

Steve Galluccio is a celebrated Canadian playwright, who also penned Mambo Italiano.

Soho Playhouse is located at 15 Vandam Street. For reservations to the free readings, email piazzainnyc@gmail.com or call (917) 553-6545.
