Saving Stan Kickoff

Gary Morgenstein’s drama Saving Stan, a love story about passion friendship and suicide, will kick off the new Survival is Insufficient Zoom Theater reading series on Tuesday, October 6 at 7PM.

The live 10-play series from the award-winning international production company Ego Actus will run Tuesdays at 7PM/ET through December. There will be no performance on Election Day, November 3.

Directed by Joan Kane, the play stars Frances McGarry* as Patrice Doner, Carlo Fiorletta* as Stan Nagel and J. Dolan Byrnes* as Jack Sanders.

In Saving Stan, Stan Nagel, a rich 60ish lawyer, suffers a stroke and can’t talk. His best friend Jack Sanders, a 60ish failed writer, somehow hears him and believes Stan is asking for help to commit suicide in exchange for getting his estate. The third character, 40-something lonely Patrice Doner, the live-in health care aide, grows suspicious of Jack’s intentions while falling in love with Stan, with whom only she can dance. Who will Save Stan?
