The Acting Company to present off-B'way reading of PUCK'D!
I couldn't be more thrilled that on Monday, Dec. 11th at 7:30pm, The Acting Company will present an off-b'way reading of my new comedy PUCK'D: A Middle-Aged Night's Dream directed by Tony Winner (and comic genius) John Rando (URINETOWN, BACK TO THE FUTURE), starring some AMAZING actors (who we'll be announcing in the coming days).
C'mon back to the enchanted forest, why don'tcha?

PUCK'D: A Middle-Aged Summer Night's Dream
In this farcical sequel to A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare's four young lovers are now mi
ddle-aged and unhappily married. Chasing after their own teenaged kids - who have impetuously fled into the enchanted woods to elope - the two aging couples once again fall under the forest's spell (and the mischievousness of an existentially-depressed Puck and his fairy queen Titania). As they shift from prose to rhyming couplets in iambic-ish pentameter, the four middle-aged lovers must face their deepest fears and - youthful passions rekindled - decide whether to evolve together or end their relationships once and for all. A comic, heartfelt play filled with romantic misfires and magical hijinks - about how for marriages to thrive long-term, we must all "return to the woods" - and grow.
