Readings from David Rabe's work

Bobby Cannavale, Judith Ivey, and Matthew Modine

Sunday April 15, 4 pm
Acorn Theatre, Theatre Row

The final Dark Night of our season will present readings of diverse excerpts from the body of work of David Rabe, author of the classic plays Hurlyburly and Streamers, as well as The New Group's current premiere, An Early History of Fire. Special guests, including Bobby Cannavale, Judith Ivey, and Matthew Modine, will read selections from Rabe's acclaimed novels and lesser known plays like Those the River Keeps, as well as reflect on Rabe's singular and brilliant career. Public discussion with David Rabe and the actors will follow.

The New Group is committed to fostering artistic dialogue, and this is the fourth season that we are presenting Dark Nights at The New Group, in which important theater artists discuss their creative process and present works-in-progress. These events are free to all, and allow our audience to interact with our artists around thought-provoking topics. Recent Dark Nights have included filmmaker Todd Solondz speaking with Thomas Bradshaw about writing about taboo subjects; readings of scenes from Hamlet, with Lisa Emery, Mamie Gummer, Josh Hamilton, and Wallace Shawn; and Ethan Hawke and Jonathan Marc Sherman discussing Jonathan’s new play inspired by Brecht’s Baal, and performing Brecht scenes and songs. All events are on Sundays in the Acorn Theater at Theatre Row.

There is a $20 suggested donation. Event is free to subscribers.
