Stan Richardson's play, according to production notes, concerns "a privileged family driven histrionically over the brink of insanity by their own sexual obsessiveness." Ben Rimalower will direct the 8 PM reading at the Ensemble Studio Theatre, and joining Blazer onstage will be Beau Allulli, Cara Greene, Jerry Marcini and Sixteen Wounded's Omar Metwally. Those interested in attending the reading should e-mail Rimalower at benrimalower@hotmail.com.

Off-Broadway, she played the Nurse in Hello Again, earning a Drama Desk nomination for her performance. She received New Jersey's Best Actress Award for her work in The Miracle Worker, and her other regional credits include My Fair Lady and Peter Pan.
