Jessica Hecht will play the title role in a staged reading of Zona Gale's Miss Lulu Bett, to be presented at Women's Project on Monday, April 12 at 7pm. Joan Vail Thorne will direct.

This comedy of manners examines the awakening of a shy, overworked spinster who rebels against her exploitative family and achieves happiness on her own terms.

The cast will also include Frances Sternhagen as Mrs. Bett, Michael Countryman, Greg Keller, Reed Birney, and Stella Bernstein. In addition, K.T. Sullivan will sing songs from the period.

Tickets are $15-$50. To purchase, call 212-765-1706.
