News   Heidi Armbruster, Jared Zirilli, Michelle Federer Will Lead Free Reading of New Play Involving Art and a Ménage à Trois
 
A free reading of Stone, a new play by Drama Desk Award-winning playwright David Wiltse, will be held Jan. 13 at 7 PM at the Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey.

Part of the Forum Soundings series, the three-character play will be directed by Mark Shanahan (The 39 Steps) and feature Heidi Armbruster (Time Stands Still), Jared Zirilli (Lysistrata Jones) and Michelle Federer (Wicked, Three Days of Rain).  Here's how PTNJ bills the new work: "Benjamin, an accomplished sculptor, is called to a luxurious apartment by the sister-in-law of a wealthy scion to ostensibly give her lessons in sculpting. Despite his wary and somewhat cynical worldview, he finds himself caught up in a menage a trois that calls into question his creativity and artistic integrity."

Wiltse is the winner of a Drama Desk Award for Most Promising Playwright for his first produced play, Suggs, at Lincoln Center. His second play, Doubles, ran during the 1985-86 season on Broadway. Four other plays, A Grand Romance, A Dance Lesson, Temporary Help and Crazy Horse And Three Stars, have been produced at the Long Wharf Theater in New Haven, CT, and elsewhere. A comedy series created by Wiltse, "Ladies Man," ran for a season on CBS.
