With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America's pre-eminent humor writers. He is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and his most recent book, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, each of which became an immediate bestseller. There are a total of ten million copies of his books in print and they have been translated into 25 languages. David Sedaris' next book will be a collection of his diaries, entitled Theft By Finding (summer 2017). The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.
From Sarah Ruhl, one of today's most celebrated playwrights, comes a story of an unconventional friendship between two of the 20th century's most notable poets: Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell. Drawn from a correspondence spanning thirty years, more than 400 letters, and distances as disparate as Maine to Key West and London to South America, Dear Elizabeth is a beautiful portrait of two lives intertwined.

The White Plains Performing Arts Center play reading series of classic, TONY honored Best Plays continues with Tennessee William's Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. The Nakd Stage Play Reading Series features actors with scripts in hand, no sets, costumes or props. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE WORDS.
The play tells the story of greed and deception within a patriarchal southern family. Specifically, the plot focuses on the turbulent relationship of a wife and husband, Maggie "The Cat" and Brick Pollitt, and their interaction with Brick's family over the course of one evening gathering at the family estate in Mississippi, ostensibly to celebrate the birthday of patriarch and tycoon "Big Daddy" Pollitt. Maggie, through wit and beauty, has escaped a childhood of desperate poverty to marry into the wealthy Pollitt family, but finds herself suffering in an unfulfilling marriage. Brick, an aging football hero, has neglected his wife and further infuriates her by ignoring his brother's attempts to gain control of the family fortune. Brick's indifference and his near-continuous drinking, date back to the recent suicide of his friend Skipper. Big Daddy is unaware that he has cancer and will not live to see another birthday; his doctors and his family have conspired to keep this information from him and his wife. His relatives are in attendance and attempt to present themselves in the best possible light, hoping to receive the definitive share of Big Daddy's enormous wealth.
On the night of their 20th anniversary high school reunion, Greg and Steph revisit their home town after having moved to New York. Kent and Carly are suspicious of their reasons for returning and the four friends dance (sometimes literally) through a series of encounters at their school gym as they try to rekindle old friendships, struggle with their futures (together and separately) and reveal secrets to one another that might have been better left buried beneath a pile of yearbooks. Reasons to be Pretty Happy is a funny, sad, silly and sobering look at friendships and loves that have weathered and lasted for a long, long time--some even past their due dates.
