Actors in the Westport Country Playhouse current production of Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy “Bedroom Face” took part today in a post-matinee symposium with audience members led by David Kennedy (l), associate artistic director. In response to Kennedy’s question about whether the actors feel exhilarated or exhausted after performing the physically demanding play, Claire Karpen (r) said, “I’m in bed for most of the second act with the lights out and I admit that I dozed off. So I guess you could say the play is exhausting.” Others taking part included (l-r) Carson Elrod, Sarah Manton, Nicole Lowrance, and Cecilia Hart. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
