The always fascinating Erin Cardillo (Esme Vanderheusen) recently sent us a note to tell us about her latest project. Miss Cardillo was excited to inform us that there will be a staged reading of her first play Mercy Park in the Los Angeles area this month. “I have an amazing director and cast, and I’m so thrilled to be able to share my work with you,” she enthused. Her play tells the story of Rose and Avery, two people from very different worlds who come together in Mercy Park, an extraordinary place at the center of a dreary city. The play mixes past and present time as it unfolds their complex love story.

This event is being held at the 2nd Stage Theatre of The Blank Theatre Company, a small and highly respected theater in Los Angeles known for its creative and clever work. The production will be directed by Brendan Hughes and feature the acting talents of Rachel Boston, James Snyder,
Terryn Westbrook, Tony Pasqualini and Justin Kirk. The theater is located at 6500 Santa Monica Blvd. (at Wilcox) Los Angeles, CA. There will only be a single performance and it shall she held on Monday, January the 14th at 8PM. If you’re interested in tickets, please call (323) 661-9827.

Anyone in the area is encouraged to check out what is sure to be a wonderful evening, but, if you’re lucky enough to attend, please come back and tell us all about it.
