Program Audience:

The Moses Gunn Players will present a reading at the Guilford Free Library. The one-act play, Box and Cox by John Morton is a 19th century farce about a woman who has rented one room to two different men; one who works days, the other nights. Neither knows about the other.

The readers are:

Special guest Norman Allen, whose credits include appearances at the Globe Theatre, London; Regional Theatre throughout the United States; and Off-Broadway. He’s worked with such notables as Christopher Walken, and Christopher Plumber. Mr. Allen recently brought Truman Capote’s A Christmas Memory to audiences via Zoom for which he received critical acclaim.

Norman Marshall, who has performed his one-man show, John Brown: Trumpet of Freedom in the United States and Europe; has appeared on stage and screen with Raul Julia, Moses Gunn, F. Murray Abraham, Harvey Fierstein, Robert Guillaume, Burt Reynolds, Barbara Streisand and Telly Savalas.

Gwen Gunn has performed Off-Broadway. She’s done readings of plays by Athol Fugard at Yale University with her husband, Moses Gunn, as well as various staged readings throughout the campus. A founding member of Westbeth Playwrights Feminist Collective, Ms. Gunn helped to write, direct, and produce five seasons.

Marion Gittleman is a writer as well as a stage and voice actor. She appeared with Kim Hunter, William Roerick, Anne Meachem, and David J. Stewart in the original production of Come Slowly, Eden by Norman Rosten; Hurd Hatfield in John Brown’s Body, and a myriad of productions in New York and the Bay Area.

Admission is free and refreshments will be served.
