Break A Leg Presents the New York Premiere of:
The Hospital Room
by Marv Siegel
Bloomingdale Library, 150 West 100th Street, NYC (between Amsterdam & Columbus Avenues)
Directed by Valerie Adami-Juhlin
Featuring: Colin Dwyer, Michael Edmund, Elizabeth Elson*, Kevin Hauver*, Donna Lee Michaels*, Robert Tekavec
Ben Peterson is admitted to the hospital for major surgery and finds himself sharing a room with a very annoying Donk Benjamin. The two eventually find common ground until Ben learns something about Donk which he finds very troubling. As he is being wheeled into the operating room Ben demands to be returned to a different room – if he survives.
The Hospital Room was the recipient of the first place prize in the Helen-Jean New Play contest for best new full-length play.
The staged reading will be followed by a post performance talkback.
