Tony Award winner Jim Norton, currently in Broadway's Of Mice and Men, and Gillian Hanna and Conor MacNeill of Broadway's The Cripple of Inishmaan, will take part in a reading of Irish playwright Jim Nolan's Brighton on Monday, May 12. The event is presented by Origin Theatre Company as part of its 10th annual Mondays of May play reading series.

A comic drama, Brighton follows the friendship that develops between an older woman and a much younger man, both of whom are recuperating in a London nursing home. Matt Torney directs.

Nolan's other plays seen in New York include Moonshine and The Salvage Shop. The next plays joining the Mondays of May series will be Ulsberg Brager's The Boy of Oystein, directed by Alicia Dyana House, on May 19, and Arne Lygre Man Without Purpose, directed by Henning Hegland, on May 26. All the readings will take place at NYU's Glucksman Ireland House at 7pm and are free to the public.
