Maugham’s Menage by Richard Caulfeild Goodman

The reading presentation is directed by Shela Xoregos

Suggested Contribution: $5

The first reading of Richard Caulfeild Goodman’s play Maugham’s Menage will be given by the Xoregos Performing Company on January 22, a Monday at 7:00 PM. The reading is at Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue at 10 Street. The subject of this fascinating play is William Somerset Maugham: his diverse romances and his unique way of devising the subjects of his literary works.

An informal discussion with the audience following the reading will be led by director Shela Xoregos.

W. Somerset Maugham, in full William Somerset Maugham, (born Jan. 25, 1874, Paris, France—died Dec. 16, 1965, Nice), English novelist, playwright, and short- story writer whose work is characterized by a clear unadorned style, cosmopolitan settings, and a shrewd understanding of human nature.

2017/2018 New City, New Blood readings season begins November 2017. Submissions for the season are now ongoing.

Here’s the movie poster from the film version RAIN – I am excited to portray the character originated by Joan Crawford
