On Her Shoulders

New Perspectives Theater's program in association with the New School for Drama, begins its second season with a staged reading of A Fool of Fortune by Martha Morton on Wednesday, 2/19Admission is FREE to the public!  
A Fool of Fortune is an 1896 Wall Street melodrama that still resonates today as we are challenged with another "Gilded Age".

The play is directed by Melody Brooks; dramaturg Sherry Engle delivers The Play in Context, introducing the script in its historical time and place at the top of the evening. She is joined by a unique guest-Ms. Martha Morton herself (in the person of Karen Eterovich)!  
Doors open at 6:30pm; The Play In Context begins at 6:45pm and the reading starts at 7:00pm. The performance is at the New School, 66 West 12th Street (Auditorium formally called Tishman).
