Hare/Deux Productions present the reading at the Public Theater. Show time is 7 PM. Actress Streep will be joined onstage by Henry Wolfe Gummer, Grace Gummer, Tony winner Debra Monk, Joe Paulik and John Rothman. Pam MacKinnon directs.

"Mom isn't the center of attention anymore," according to A Good Smoke press notes. "Will she stop at nothing to regain that position? Mom drops her meds – cold-turkey – the day her daughter gives birth, resulting in severe drug withdrawal. As her daughter is wheeled into delivery, Mom is hauled off to the psych ward. Dad and their two sons are trying desperately to cope, but this family is functioning at its worst when it needs to be at its best."

Kevin Spirtas is producing manager of the reading.

The Public Theater is located in Manhattan at 425 Lafayette Street.
