Tony Award winner Rondi Reed and Steppenwolf’s Francis Guinan will star in a world premiere virtual reading of Adam Szymkowicz’s Such Small Hands, directed by Artistic Director of Northlight Theatre BJ Jones on October 14, 2020, at 7:30 p.m. CT, as part of Kane Repertory Theatre’s New Play Lab.

The Play: Paul is cancer ridden and descending into dementia. He wants to take his own life while he still feels like himself. Marie, his wife, fights to prevent his suicide. A play about love, aging, selfishness and selflessness.

The digital workshop will broadcast live on Youtube and will remain available until October 18, 2020. A live talkback with Szymkowicz, Reed, Guinan, Jones, and Kane Rep Artistic Director Daniil Krimer will follow the reading.

All readings are free with a suggested donation of $25.
