News   Greta Scacchi to Direct Reading of Intimate Strangers
Greta Scacchi, an Emmy winner and Golden Globe nominee for her performance in "Rasputin," will direct an industry reading of Bob Ellis and Denny Lawrence's Intimate Strangers.

Andrew Jenkins will produce the reading, which will be held June 8 at London's Vaudeville Theatre. The noon performance will feature the talents of Bruno Langley, Susie Lindeman, Issy van Randwyck, Mark Tandy and James Wilby. "One weekend in August 1956, Arthur Miller and Marilyn Monroe are guests of Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, at their country estate," according to press notes. "It is one week into the shooting of 'The Prince and the Showgirl,' the eagerly anticipated film starring Larry and Marilyn. Yet, as respective director and producer, they are already at loggerheads. Miller and Olivier bond, wondering if a neurotic, abused, promiscuous, unstable and ego‐tripping actress is worth the trouble. They all drink, dance and go to bed damaged. In the middle of the night, Arthur is ready to leave. Next morning, Noel Coward arrives. The weekend isn't over yet."

Industry folk interested in attending the reading should e-mail or call 44 (0)20 8319 3657.
