Two Chairs by Richard L. Gaw - Livestream Table Read
Sunday, April 11, 2021 at 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
Nathan, a manager; Cheyenne, a young Hollywood star; and Margaret Bloom, a student and reporter at Smith College (and the least person likely to ever find her way into the hotel room of young Hollywood royalty) meet in a hotel room in New York City, during the last vestige of a press junket to promote a blockbuster Hollywood film.
Over the course of an evening, Ms. Bloom slices blindly through the morass of Cheyenne's armor and somehow -- through both blindness and courage -- finds herself at the heart of a story that has been buried for years. It is a story of resilience, of love, and the many layers that cover our ultimate truth.
Two Chairs was most recently performed at a small theater company in New York City in 2012 after it won Best Play at the company's 2011 play festival. CTC’s virtual reading stars Michael Gray, Aidan Briggs, and Margaret Coons.
This event can be watched on Sunday, April 11 at 7pm via YouTube.
This event is FREE to view, but City Theater Company appreciates your support.
City Theater Company is committed to ridding the planet of complacency, redundancy, indifference and fear — therefore clearing the way for fun, electricity, cool art, and some major chutzpah.
We seek out what makes us most afraid and then attack it with an odd, supernatural fury. We breathe in and out in time with our audience, and the resulting electrical charge produces theatrical shock waves that demand attention. The folks here believe that theater should be filled with big energy, big ideas, big fun, and other big stuff we haven’t even thought of yet. Meanwhile, we burn bridges and bite bullets. We pound the pavement, shoot the moon, damn the torpedoes, and laugh ’til it hurts. We do stuff that rocks, and we have one hell of a time!
