Beginning at 8 PM, Rebeck will share sections of her book and sign copies of it — and editions of her plays Mauritius, Bad Dates, Omnium Gatherum (2003 Pulitzer Prize finalist) and The Butterfly Collection. Copies of the works will be available for purchase at the event. In "Three Girls and Their Brother," according to notes, "life in the Heller household is changed forever after a photo of the three striking redheaded sisters graces the pages of The New Yorker. Narrated in four parts from the perspective of each sibling (the three sisters and their brother, Philip) the novel follows the girls' journey from The New Yorker feature to modeling for the industry's most exclusive fashion magazines, attending New York City's trendiest events, and, inevitably, making the front pages of the tabloids. But as the girls go from taking high school chemistry tests to navigating the celebrity talk show circuit, they quickly experience the drawbacks of living in the spotlight. As the struggle for fame threatens to tear the family apart, the siblings learn that, in the celebrity world of viciousness and betrayal, their most important allies are each other."
The event is free and open to the public. For reservations, phone (212) 564-1235 x3152, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line "Rebeck Reading." Playwrights Horizons is located at 416 West 42nd Street.
