Part of the company's Mondays@3 development program, the reading will be directed by Ted Sod.
The cast will feature Jeremy Bobb (Cactus Flower, Is He Dead?), Demosthenes Chrysan (Aftermath, Blood and Gifts), Kerry Malloy (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Dance Dance Revolution) and Eric T. Miller (Sweet Storm, Betrayed).
The Ocean All Around Us, according to New York Theatre Workshop, is a "powerful, haunting play that unfolds entirely in reverse. After a young artist’s paintings are destroyed in a studio fire, he struggles to piece together a chain of life-changing events. His older brother, a psychiatrist, tends to him while facing his own transgressions from years past."
The play was a recent Finalist for the Eugene O’Neill National Playwrights Conference and was given a staged reading at Abingdon Theatre Company in September as part of its First Reading series.
New York Theatre Workshop is located at 83 East 4th Street. Admission is free. Reservations and questions may be directed to David Lavine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
