MAPLEWOOD, NJ — Midtown Direct Rep continues its 2016-17 staged reading series, Theater at The Woodland, with a presentation of “We Will Not Describe the Conversation,” written by Eugenie Carabatsos and directed by Christina Roussos. This staged reading will be performed for one night only on Sunday, Nov. 20, at 7 p.m. at The Woodland, 60 Woodland Road in Maplewood, where MDR is the resident theater company.
Inspired by a missing scene in “Crime and Punishment,” “We Will Not Describe the Conversation” follows a massage therapist whose newest client has come with the news that her estranged brother has committed a heinous crime — killing an elderly woman with an axe — and is nowhere to be found. The women try to piece together how this happened, while also uncovering their own dark desires and the fear that they will one day turn out like him.
Admission is charged, though student and senior discounts are available. Tickets can be purchased online through Brown Paper Tickets at http://middirrep.bpt.me or by calling 1-800-838-3006.
