Join New York Society Library member and past presenter Bill Connington at a benefit reading of The Dining Room by beloved American playwright A.R. Gurney. The play is a comedy of manners about white European culture in 20th-century America. The reading also stars TV/Broadway performers Barbara Walsh (Company, Falsettos), Stephanie D'Abruzzo (Avenue Q), Edoardo Ballerini (Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos), David M. Lutken (Inherit the Wind), and Annmarie Benedict (Robeson).
The evening benefits the restoration of the dining room at Van Cortlandt House in the Bronx, historically important as the headquarters of General George Washington in the Battle of White Plains.
