Directed by Jane Unger, the reading features Barry Bostwick, George West Carruth, John Gleeson Connolly, Nathan Darrow and Elyse Knight.

The Inge Festival runs through March 29. Kopit, who is this year’s Inge Festival Honoree, is a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and three-time Tony Award nominee.

BecauseHeCan, according to press notes, is "set in a dangerous new world, and tells of Joseph and Joanne Elliot, a high-powered New York City couple who awake one day to discover that their private lives are no longer private, thanks to a teenage computer hacker with a warped sense of fun."
