Solana Beach, CA, November 30, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- North Coast Repertory Theatre, New Works Reading Series, presents the reading of The Honorable H. Lee Sarokin’s new play The Wedding Cake, December 13th at 7:30pm.
The Wedding Cake “is about the tension between religious liberty and discrimination and the sacrifices made by those who stand for or against either,” says Sarokin. In this play, two couples, quarrel over an incident, which, at first, seems to be trivial. Tension soon develops into a bitter dispute with each couple; both suffering consequences they never envisioned, over something they thought so small.
Longtime Artistic Director at North Coast Rep, David Ellenstein, speaks highly of Sarokin’s works: “His plays are usually short, gripping and about hot-button issues without any sugar-coating,” Ellenstein said. “They’re open to audience interpretation instead of preaching a point, and they’re very immediate and accessible.” This play is sure to engender strong feelings and raise great discussion at the talkback after the reading.
Judge H. Lee Sarokin is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Harvard Law School. After a 25-year career as a trial lawyer, he was appointed to the U.S. District Court by President Carter and elevated to the U.S. Court of Appeals by President Clinton.
