Join us for a live reading of this madcap transatlantic heist comedy, straight from ’88. Discover what’s sexy about being a barrister. Learn how not to debrief a KGB defector or bump off a witness. Hono(u)r the true specialness of the U.S./U.K. relationship.
Live Read was created by Jason Reitman (Director of ‘Thank You for Smoking’, ‘Juno’ and ‘Up in the Air’). Reitman reads the stage directions. The full cast lists and the role each actor will play is kept secret until the event itself. The actors do not rehearse ahead of time. Reitman says that the series is to show audiences how actors create characters but it’s also a chance to just concentrate on the quality of the script without any distraction.
Now it’s time to try a Live Read in Belfast. We’ll be keeping the cast a secret right up to the night.
The zippy, hilarious original starred Jamie Lee Curtis, John Cleese, Kevin Kline and Michael Palin. The Belfast live-read will feature zip and hilarity from charmingly under-rehearsed local talent.
