This week, Miles is back in one of his favorite places, The Berkshires, working on Rich Orloff's Jennifer's Birth — the first play of the 2016 Staged Reading Series at Berkshire Playwrights Lab.
In anticipation of her mother's impending death, a middle-aged Jennifer (Gordana Rashovich) goes back to the circumstances surrounding her own birth in 1953. With amusement and horror she pieces together what molded her mother — from Jewish familial bickering to the emotional oppression of the era. Miles will be playing Lee — Jennifer's soon-to-be uncle, just returning from the Korean War with dreams of starting over in California. A mama's boy with a healthy dose of chutzpah.
Direction is by TV veteran Matthew Penn (Queen of the South, Royal Pains), one of the co-founders and artistic directors of BPL.
The reading starts at 7:30pm on 7/13. Attendance is free, but reservations are recommended and can be made here. Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center. (14 Castle Street, Great Barrington, MA).
