NEW HOPE, PA - (12/20/18) – Brooke Wetterhahn joins the cast of NAKED CALLand will now be performing as “Jennifer”. Naked Call, a brand-new play by award-winning playwright, Ken Kaissaris premiering as a professionally staged reading, produced by New Feathers Productions as announced earlier this month.
More about Naked Call: AnOff-Off-Broadway theatre company who produces a futuristic, post-apocalyptic, Dystopian tale, but the concept requires that the piece be performed in the nude. The play is fully rehearsed and the cast gathers for the first naked rehearsal. Hesitation sets in and causes the cast to scrutinize the concept. Are we getting naked out of necessary artistic expression? Or is this a desperate attempt to be noticed? Note: The real cast performing on the 20th will be clothed.
The complete Naked Call cast includes:
Michael Gamacheas Patrick
Eileen Cellaas Lorriane
Jason Silvermanas Tim
Daniel Patrick Smithas Dirk
Brooke Wetterhahn as Jennifer
Miriam Whiteas Lisa
