May 21, 2012

Rebecca Naomi Jones, Gayle Rankin and Fran Kanz will read Max Posner's Snore and Other Sorts of Breathing May 21 and 22.



Presented at the Roundabout Rehearsal Studio, the Page 73 Productions readings are free and open to the public. The May 21 reading will be held at 7:30 PM, while the May 22 presentation will take place at 3 PM.

Trip Cullman (Lonely I'm Not) will direct a cast including Jones (Passing Strange, American Idiot), Rankin (Tribes), Kanz (Death of a Salesman), Lisa Joyce (La Bete), Cameron Scoggins (The Big Meal), Sue Jean Kim (The Hallway Trilogy), Brian Kelly, Deidre O'Connell (Magic-Bird) and Jo Lampert.

According to Page 73, "Snore and Other Sorts of Breathing turns a sharp eye on a group of twentysomethings blessed with plenty of education and jobs working for the nation's most respected non-profits and righteous causes. Unraveling over six breathless birthday parties in one year, Snore maps the seismic shifts rumbling through their great friendships and good intentions and all the flailing and failing that goes into trying to make a difference."

Posner's plays also include The Thing About Air Travel, The Famished, The War On Safety and You Me + The Spiders. In January Posner was named the recipient of the 2012 Page 73 Playwriting Fellowship.
