On Jan. 25, the Acting Company will reveal The Truth About Blayds. That is, it will present the 1921 A.A. Milne play by that name as part of its Salon Series of readings. John Miller-Stephany will direct a cast featuring Kristin Bennett, Laura Hicks, Bill Hulings, Laura Kachergus, Lisa McMillan, Thomas Schall, Ian Stuart and Donald Symington.
The comedy is about a poet, who, upon his death, turns out not to be what he seemed in life.
Lisa Banes (Arcardia ) and Patricia Hodges (Communicating Doors ) will star in Easy Virtue by Noel Coward, the next play in the series. Also in the cast are two Love's Fire alumna -- Erika Rolfsrud and Daniel Pearce -- as well as Glynnis Bell, Jeremy Davidson, Kate Forbes, Edward Hibbert (Gross Indecency) and Matthew Miller.
All readings take place in The Salon, located at 432 E. 91st St. in Manhattan. For information, call (212) 564-3510. -- By Robert Simonson
