Free Reading of ‘Lightning in a Bottle’ at Holmdel Monday Night

You are invited to a FREE READING!

by CJ Nolan
Monday July, 6th 7pm
On September 8, 1979, the body of American actress Jean Seberg ("Breathless", "Paint Your Wagon") was found in the back seat of a car, covered with a blanket, on a deserted street in Paris. On another September 8, several hundred years earlier, a young Joan of Arc moved on the city of Paris which led to her capture and being burned at the stake. At the age of forty, Jean committed suicide through an overdose of pills found at the scene. Joan’s death eventually brought her to sainthood.

These two lives are traced in "Lightning In A Bottle" by C J Nolan. The story is an American tragedy - one deeply rooted in the optimism of the Fifties, the anger of the Sixties, and the Seventies despair. It is a true story told by two women - a young girl who must discover the heart of a saint and an older woman trying to save her own soul.
The cast is :
Jean - Laura Casey
Young Jean - Amanda Deltuvia
Voices - Brian Craig

Admission is Free. Coffee is served.

Shakespeare’s classic tale of cross-dressing twins, dancing dukes, and a dashing pair of yellow tights, which takes the audience on a trip to the mystical kingdom of Illyria. In the household of Olivia, two campaigns are being quietly waged – one by the lovesick lord Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio. When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows.
