2013–2014 Concert Readings
Washington DC is the second-largest theatre town in North America. There are very few theatres currently in DC that exclusively reflect the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) experience. We're very excited about this new project, but we need help to make it happen. Please show your support.
Long Island Sound • by Noel Coward • directed by Delia Taylor

An English author on his first speaking tour in America is invited to spend a quiet and restful weekend at a new found friend's little place on Long Island Sound. In what might be described as a comedy of bad manners, he finds himself the guest curiosity at a large gathering of carousing theatrical and society people. Behavior he finds to be outrageous and lack of sleep (every time he tries to retire, his bedroom seems to attract a gathering or an amorous drunk) finally drive this mild mannered guest over the edge. Originally written in 1947 after Coward suffered similar experiences on both sides of the Atlantic, the play gathered dust for over fifty years its characters were too recognizable to have the play produced in their lifetimes!
