04 Apr 2014
Producers Bob Guza and John Hardy of Shelton Street will present an industry-only reading of A Confederacy of Dunces, based on the best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name by John Kennedy Toole, April 28 at Pearl Studios in New York City.
David Esbjornson will direct, and additional casting will be announced at a later date.
A Confederacy of Dunces, written by Toole and published posthumously by LSU Press in 1980, "tells the story of Ignatius J. Reilly, his exploits, misadventures and all-around insultingly brilliant behavior in 1960's New Orleans," according to press notes.
