News: Free World Premiere Staged Reading of New York Shakespeare Exchange's "The Card Play" on September 24

The New York Shakespeare Exchange has announced the world premiere staged reading of The Card Play, a "new theatrical experiment" by NYSX's Resident Dramaturg Shane Breaux and Resident Playwright Kevin Brewer, in partnership with the 53rd Street Library (18 W. 53rd Street, NYC). The reading will take place on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 from 7-9pm (doors open to audience at 6:30pm). This event is free.

NYSX describes the play:

"The Card Play, co-written by Shane Breaux and Kevin Brewer, explores the power and fallibility of memory by following Mark, a painter, through the twists and turns of his life. At each performance, the order of his memories is randomly arranged by the shuffle of a deck of cards, creating for a unique experience for each and every audience. The randomized style of the performance allows for more than 469 million versions of the play and invites the audience to experience, alongside the actors, a palpable sense of how memories appear and disappear throughout our lives."

The cast includes Vince Gatton, Erin Treadway, Joel Oramas, and Jay Ben Markson. The reading is directed by Ross Williams.

The event is free, but reservations are strongly encouraged. Visit to reserve your seat.
