Martin Moran's Analphabet to Receive Benefit Reading in L.A.
The play tells the dual stories of what happens when a middle aged actor meets an African refugee--a survivor of torture who is seeking asylum, and of a bewildered tourist's discovery at The Cradle of Human Kind on the outskirts of Johannesburg.
Moran is best known for his award-winning solo show The Tricky Part, which was staged by Barrish. His other stage credits include Monty Python's Spamalot, Titanic, Cabaret, Bells Are Ringing, and Floyd Collins.
Barrish's credits include Mike Birbiglia's Sleepwalk With Me, Old Wicked Songs, and Trust.
