Barefoot Theatre Company presents a free reading of Welcome to the White Room, a new play by Trish Harnetiaux, May 13 as part of its bareNaked Reading Series.

Directed by Benjamin Kamine, the reading features Anna Chlumsky ("Veep"), Aidan Koehler, Luke Leonard, Richard Toth and Jacob A. Ware.

"In Welcome to the White Room, we discover Ms. White, Jennings, and Mr. Paine shortly after they have arrived," press notes state. "We follow their journey as they attempt to figure out exactly what they are meant to be doing. There are letters that only Ms. White can read. There is the arrival of The Last Deck of Cards in the World—and with, at all times, one-thing-leading-to-another—somewhere between throwing a party, suppressing sexual tensions, and dancing a tango—this senseless world summons its puppeteer, who's in for a big surprise."

In 1999 Barefoot Theatre Company was founded by a multicultural group of artists determined to produce new and existing thought-provoking works. Barefoot Theatre Company’s most recent collaborations include the Off-Broadway revival of Pintauro's Raft Of The Medusa and a workshop of the new play F**king Vigwan (or Swag) by Pulitzer Prize nominee Kristoffer Diaz.

Readings are held at “The Loft” (East 3rd Productions) 684 Broadway, #5W. Welcome to the White Room is free, with limited seating. Inquiries about admission can be sent to
