The reading at the Players Club in Manhattan features Jeremy Bobb, Janie Brookshire, Sidney J. Burgoyne, Richard Easton, Joy Franz, Victoria Haynes, Warren Kelley, Marc Kudisch, William McCauley, James Prendergast, Ben Rauch and Ted Schneider.

Show time is 7 PM.

David Staller, the acclaimed singer-actor who has produced and directed all of the Project Shaw offerings, handles those same duties for this reading.

In The Devil's Disciple, according to press notes, "some of Shaw's most entertainingly iconographic characters fill out this story of revolt: of one country against another as well as of the inexhaustible battle of the human spirit — how we choose to create and define ourselves in the face of societal expectations. The play is set in a 1777 New Hampshire village where Dick Dudgeon and Anthony Andrews both open their hearts to life."

Past participants include Blair Brown, Mark Kudisch, Kerry Butler, Tyne Daly, Jonathan Hadary, Daniel Jenkins, Rebecca Luker, Michael Cerveris, Karen Ziemba, Michele Pawk, Bruce Vilanch, Jack Gilpin and George S. Irving.

The Players Club is located in Manhattan at 16 Gramercy Park South. Tickets, priced $30, are available by calling (212) 352-3101. For more information visit
