News   Westchester's Hudson Stage Will Harbor Murderers, and Two Readings, in Fall 2007
 
The producing partners of Hudson Stage Company, Westchester County's resident professional troupe, announced its fall 2007 programming, which will launch with a Sept. 28 staged reading of a new work.

The reading will take place at the company's early home, the Croton Free Library. Fair Game, by California writer Karl Gajdusek, "is a highly charged political thriller about a female presidential candidate whose son's potential scandal lures her campaign into a spiral of compromises and white lies."

A Q&A with participating artists will immediately follow the performance.

The fall season will include a full mainstage production of Jeffrey Hatcher's "killingly funny new play," Murderers, directed by HSC artistic producer Dan Foster (Oct. 26-Nov. 10). In the regionally-popular comedy, "three murderers in a Florida retirement community offer their delicious confessions."

Performances will play HSC's home at Woodward Hall Theatre, Pace University 235 Elm Road, Briarcliff Manor, NY.

On Dec. 7 at 7:30 PM, HSC presents a staged reading of The Cradle of Man by Melanie Marnich. "In this comedy with dramatic twists, two American couples meet by chance in Africa near Olduvai Gorge, the birthplace of mankind," according to notes. "Lives come apart and bodies come together in this extraordinary place, where the survival of the fittest means only the strongest couple survives." A Q&A will follow with participating artists, at Woodward Hall Theatre, Pace University.

Hudson Stage's producers are Denise Bessette, Dan Foster and Olivia Sklar.
