Award winning actor and playwright Charles Busch will play Katharine Hepburn in a special one-night-only staged reading of Matthew Lombardo's one-woman show, Tea at Five, on Monday, November 28 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

The evening, to be directed by Rob Ruggiero, will benefit The Ali Forney Center. Producer Daryl Roth and Carl Siciliano, the Executive Director of the The Ali Forney Center, will introduce the event.

The play takes place at Hepburn's Connecticut home in 1983 after the Oscar-winning star was injured in a car crash. The accident affords the now legendary star an opportunity to reflect on her turbulent childhood, the triumphs and failures of her career and her heartbreaking romance with Spencer Tracy.
