About this show

Jordan Lage (Broadway's Race, Speed-the-Plow, Inherit the Wind, and Glengarry Glen Ross), John Early, and Jessica Frey will star in a reading of John Holleman's Dead Man's Hand at Atlantic Theater Company's Stage 2. Dead Mans Hand is a "two-hander." Like Sleuth, K2, and Bugs/Elmer cartoons, it has two main characters locked in a deadly struggle for dominance, survival, and acceptance. Their circumstance is slightly surreal. Of note to those interested in dramaturgy, neither character has a dark secret that is revealed in the second act. The show is funny and harrowing, an interesting theatrical cocktail. Playwright John Holleman will also direct the reading. Email [email protected] for reservations.
