Playhouse Sets Duncan and Ziemba in Comedy Play Reading

The reading is part of the Playhouse’s “Funny Mondays” series, showcasing both new and classic comedies, followed by audience feedback, often with the playwright in attendance.

The play involves the escape of a prize-winning show dog on the tarmac at LaGuardia Airport and the ensuing crisis of the entangled lives of a blue-collar Astoria couple with marriage problems, an immigrant baggage handler, and an under-employed actress leading the rescue effort.

Two additional cast members will be announced shortly.
