“Shaw’s Epifania, heiress to one of Europe’s wealthiest families, searches for love. Her first marriage fails, her next beau is dimwitted and then she falls for an Egyptian doctor whom she cannot marry until they meet conditions set-up by their respective parents. Katharine Hepburn, Sophia Loren and Maggie Smith have starred in this delightful satire,” said Margot Harley, producer of The Acting Company, in an earlier statement.
A reception with the cast and director follows the reading.
