Colt Coeur's Play Hotel reading series will present a staged reading of Adam Bock's Marcy Comes Home on Tuesday, March 13th at 7pm at the CoCo Studio in NYC. Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt (Fish Eye, Seven Minutes in Heaven), the cast features Katya Campbell (Fish Eye), Erin Felgar (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Heidi Niedermeyer (Seven Minutes in Heaven), Gio Perez (The Language of Trees), Kate Cullen Roberts (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Debargo Sanyal (After), Matt Stadelmann (American Sligo, Seven Minutes in Heaven), and Joe Tippett (Fish Eye).
In Marcy Comes Home, homecomings are just as tough on the people who never left, and it turns out being a Hollywood starlet doesn't teach you many real-life skills. This explores the coming-of-age of a generation, and explodes the notion that 'coming home' always feels good.
