Chance to see the Adam Kraar play I liked

Are you gnashing your teeth because you didn't get to see that Adam Kraar reading I blogged about attending a couple of months ago? Well, now is your chance. Adam has scored a Lisa Peterson-directed reading at LaMama.

I don't think my rehearsal schedule is going to permit me to attend, but everyone else on the planet should go.

EMPIRE OF THE TREES
by Adam Kraar
Directed by Lisa Peterson
Monday, October 13th, at 7:30 pm
74A East 4th St

EMPIRE OF THE TREES is set in India in 1963. When Deborah, a young American woman living in New Delhi, strikes up a literary and romantic bond with a traveling Indian bookseller, she discovers she has a mysterious connection to ancient Indian myth. She tries to share her new awareness with her husband, an ambitious journalist, but clashes with his inter-cultural suspicions, and cruel facts of class and history. She seeks spiritual solace with the bookseller, and from the wise old Banyan tree in her yard - which causes her household to explode, and myth to spill into reality.
