DARIEN, Conn. – A staged reading of a new play by local playwright Rocco Natale is the first production of the 2015-16 season of DAC Stage at the Darien Arts Center. The reading of "The Family" takes place at 8 p.m. Saturday in the DAC Weatherstone Studio.
This one-night reading, a comedy, is about children, parents and authority.
Natale, a Greenwich resident, shared his enthusiasm for his latest work: “We are excited to share 'The Family' with theatergoers and to allow audiences to offer feedback. Most theater patrons have not had the chance to be part of the workshop process. This is an opportunity for patrons to learn about making new theater and offering insight into a young play.”
A talk-back will follow the reading with members of the cast.
"The Family" is directed by New Canaan’s Claire Kelly, who also works as artistic director of Shakespeare on the Sound in Rowayton.
The cast includes Darien residents Emily Bryan, Kristen Ball and Autumn Howard, Kerry Gavin from Stamford, and Natale.
Tickets are not necessary to attend the performance; a donation of $10 is suggested.
The Darien Arts Center is at 2 Renshaw Road, behind town hall. For more information, visit darienarts.org or call 203-655- 8683.
