Eugene Pack's new comedy Sweet Birds will be presented as a benefit staged reading on August 27 at 8pm at Guild Hall. The reading will be directed by Pippin Parker.

The production will star J. Smith Cameron (Rectify), Mario Cantone (Sex and the City), Chloe Dirksen, Tate Donovan (Manchester by the Sea), Mike Doyle (Jersey Boys), Nick Fondulis (The Affair), Kathryn Grody, Carol Kane (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Molly Ranson (August: Osage County), Dayle Reyfel, and more to be announced.

Sweet Birds juxtaposes two stories revolving around an avant-garde Broadway production of Sweet Bird of Youth. Two different worlds unexpectedly collide on opening night — the outrageous backstage drama of the stars and a romantic adventure for two Long Island school teachers.

A portion of the proceeds from this reading will benefit the Felix Organization whose mission is to provide inspiring opportunities and new experiences to enrich the lives of children who are growing up in the foster care system.
