|A One-Night-Only Reading of
Frank J. Avella’s Vatican Falls
Presented by Ashley Garrett
Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 7PM At Alchemical Studios
Vatican Falls, Frank J. Avella’s epic play set against the backdrop of the Catholic sex abuse scandal, will have a reading presentation on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 7PM at Alchemical Studios, 104 W 14th St., (between 6th & 7th Avenues), NYC.
Vatican Falls is based on factual accounts and events and follows the life of one abuse survivor who struggles with how those closest to him could damage him the deepest. As the sex abuse scandal grows and more horrific details are released state by state, this story becomes more and more vital to the times we are living in. When will Time be Up for those who harm children?
The reading is presented by Ashley Garrett and will be directed by Mr. Avella & Carlotta Brentan. The cast will feature: Ms. Brentan, Marc Lombardo, Alice Barrett Mitchell, Jake Robertson, John DiMino, Gianmarco Colucci, Lucas Anderson, Bill Schineller, Tucker Aust & Sam Centrella.
The play runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes and will have one intermission. A white wine reception will follow the performance.
Admission is free, seating is limited. RSVP via firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-715-2356.
