Tom Stoppard at The Strand

Many thanks to everyone who filled The Strand on Sunday for the reading of Tom Stoppard’s The Hard Problem. It was great to see so many people showing up for our Scripts Play Reading Series.
Aside from the pleasure of hearing Stoppard performed by an all-star cast, it was a treat to see several favorite faces from other A.C.T. shows. On Sunday, The Hard Problem cast included actors from no fewer than four of this season’s mainstage productions: Rinabeth Apostol from Monstress; Ramiz Monsef, currently starring in The Unfortunates; David Strathairn from the upcoming Chester Bailey; and Rod Gnapp, James Wagner, Rebecca Watson, and Allison Jean White—all currently appearing in The Realistic Joneses at The Geary.

One of the amazing things about coming regularly to A.C.T. is seeing the virtuosity of actors who transform into different roles. Thank you all for coming, and we look forward to seeing you back at The Strand in May to see David Strathairn and Dan Clegg in Chester Bailey.
