The reading will be the culmination of a short workshop exploring casting an actor with a disability (Mitchell) in a role that is written as both disabled and non-disabled. Afterwards, there will be a panel discussion about the results of the workshop.
The play will also feature Eddie Aldrich, Helen Farmer, Jaygee Macapugay and Ariel Estrada.
