The reading will feature the talents of Tom Hewitt (The Rocky Horror Show, Dracula), Adam Heller (Victor/Victoria, Random Unrelated Projects), Amy Warren (The Adding Machine), Katie Klaus (A Catered Affair, Random Unrelated Projects), Frank Vlastnik (A Year With Frog and Toad, Random Unrelated Projects), Lance Rubin (Things to Ruin) and Brian Williams.

Dead Agenting, according to press notes, "exposes a fictional religious organization called 'Catharsigy' and its practice of 'dead agenting' dissenters." Writer/director Mark stated, "This play was not remotely inspired by and does not have anything whatsoever with Scientology. I myself know next to nothing about Scientology, so the idea that I would write a potentially incendiary play about L. Ron Hubbard and Tom Cruise and think that by changing their names no one would notice is absurd."

Aaron Mark is the writer/director of two independent feature films, "Random Unrelated Projects" (Best Experimental Feature, New York International Film Festival) and "Zbornik Developing," a documentary about actress-singer-comedienne Kristine Zbornik (screened earlier this year at the Laurie Beechman Theatre). As a writer, he has had readings of his plays, Failed Suicide Attempts (with Faith Prince) and Fucking Wagner (with Michael Cerveris and Leslie Kritzer), and Plays With Landline Phones, the first of which was recently presented by The Blank Theatre in Hollywood as part of their Living Room Series. He directed Hedwig and the Angry Inch for BC/EFA at New World Stages.
