Presented by Origin Theatre Company, with the participation of the Norwegian Consulate General in New York, as part of its 10th annual "Mondays in May" reading series, the reading of Jim Nolan's play is held at NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House. Matt Torney directs.

Norton's stage credits include The Seafarer and Of Mice and Men. Hanna and MacNeill are currently performing in The Cripple of Inishmaan.

Here's how the event is billed: "A funny and touching drama, Brighton traces the developing friendship between an older woman and a much younger man, both recuperating in a London nursing home."

Origin Theatre Company is the city’s only theatre company devoted to presenting the American premieres of new works by Europe’s brightest contemporary playwrights.

Upcoming readings include Ulsberg Brager's The Boy of Oystein, directed by Alicia Dyana House, May 19; and Arne Lygre's Man Without Purpose, directed by Henning Hegland, May 26.

All readings are free and open to the public. Glucksman Ireland House is located at 1 Washington Mews. Email info@origintheatre.org for reservations, and visit origintheatre.org for more information.
