MCC Theater has announced casting for its 2017 PlayLabs reading of Amanda Peet's Our Very Own Carlin McCullough. The reading takes place tonight, September 11, at 7pm at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Tyne Rafaeli directs.
The play is described as follows: "Carlin McCullough is a tennis prodigy with the chance for greatness, but the adults in her life can’t agree on what it takes to succeed in the intense world of competitive tennis. While her longtime coach and troubled mother grapple with their own pasts and failed ambitions, a dramatic encounter forces Carlin to come to terms with her past and face her future head on."
The reading will feature Tony nominee Maria Dizzia, Maurice Jones, Stefania LaVie Owen, Will Pullen, and Mckayla Twiggs.
