Staged Reading: Let Me Down Easy


November 1


7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us for three evenings of performances from the Acting in a Professional Production class.

The Theatre Lab's Acting in a Professional Production Fall Reading Series presents a staged reading of Let Me Down Easy, written by Anna Deavere Smith.
Funny, moving, and engaging - this play examines the meaning of lost love and human resilience in times of difficulty. Through the lens of the national debate on health care, Let Me Down Easy has been credited with creating a new form of theatre.

Watch three free staged readings with professional directors and actors as part of a core company of students playing substantial roles.

Plays include:

  • (10/18) - Columbinus by Stephen Karam and PJ Paparelli
  • (10/25) - Arab-Israeli Cookbook by Robin Soans
  • (11/1) - Let me Down Easy by Anna Deavere Smith
Performances take place on Tuesdays at 7:30pm until November 1 at The Theatre Lab, 900 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC in Undercroft Theatre. Free and open to the public.
Content Warning: the script contains material and themes that might be harmful to some audiences: explores mortality, profanity
