TAP’s Play-reading Series Shifts to Virtual
Third Avenue PlayWorks (TAP) has made some changes to its play-reading series.
Dairyland by Heidi Armbruster, set for Feb. 4, 7 pm, will be performed virtually only, and the planned reading of Betrayal by Harold Pinter on Feb. 5 has been canceled. The final two shows in the series will be performed virtually only.
Mrs. Harrison by R. Eric Thomas will be performed Feb. 19, 7 pm. In it, Aisha and Holly meet by chance at their 10-year college reunion. Is this the first time they’ve met, or has it just been a long time? They can’t agree. Aisha is a successful Black playwright, and Holly is a struggling, white stand-up comedian. Aisha’s most successful play bears a striking resemblance to a tragic event in Holly’s life, so is it a coincidence or theft?
On Feb. 20, 7 pm, TAP will present The Last Match by Anna Ziegler.
Played out under the bright lights of the U.S. Open semifinals, the work pits a rising Russian star against an American great in an epic showdown that follows two tennis titans through pivotal moments in their lives both on and off the court.
