Ensemble member Hanna Cheek is among the cast for The Actors Company Theatre’s staged reading of Salute to the Brave, a neglected Noël Coward play. From TACT’s website, Salute is:
“an extraordinary lost play written in 1941 as an attempt by Sir Noël on behalf of the British government to encourage the U.S. to enter World War II. The ink was barely dry on the script when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and, well, the rest is history. The play languished in a proverbial drawer for 75 years until it was recently brought to light by Coward scholar, Barry Day.”
The special one-night-only event will take place Monday, November 13th at 7p at the Scholastic Theatre, at 557 Broadway in New York.
