A reading of Jonathan Caren's Open Heart Meditation will be presented at 7 PM. Laura Savia directs.
The cast includes Michael Chernus, Diane Davis, Crystal Finn and Jeffrey Hawkins.
"Carly is nine months pregnant and can't stop eating sand," according to press notes. "Her husband Russell won't remove his running shoes long enough to stand by her side. When she calls on her spiritual best friend for guidance, Carly’s capacity for love is challenged in a way she never thought possible."
Jonathan Caren’s plays have been read at Manhattan Theatre Club, Ensemble Studio Theater, Partial Comfort Productions, The Lark Development Center, NY Stage and Film and The Berkshire Theater Lab, among others. His play, The Recommendation, will premiere in 2012 at The Old Globe in San Diego.
