Announcing the cast of The Naked Eye

Director Bill Knapp has announced the cast of The Naked Eye, the sixth and final staged reading in the 2013-2014 Staged Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Paul Rudnick wrote the script.

The cast includes:

* Nan Bemiss - Beth Butram
* Mumbali - Mona Bapat
* Alex DelFlavio - Timothy Devery
* Marcus Dowling - Rick Siler
* Kattrin Dowling - April Hawkins
* Pete Bemiss - Eric Francis
* Sissy Bemiss Darnley - Abri Geist-Dennis
* Lynette Marshall - Becky Bruni
* Narrator - Linda Kampe

Alex DelFlavio is an ambitious downtown artist who plans to include sexually explicit photographs in his uptown show to advance his career. Nan Bemiss, the wife of a Republican senator who is running for the presidency and a gallery board member, appeals to DelFlavio to remove three of his most "offensive" photographs for the opening.

The staged reading of The Naked Eye will be Tuesday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre at 320 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette - the corner of 5th Street and North Street.

It is a Pay What You Can event. A question-and-answer session between the playwright, the cast, the director and the audience will immediately follow the reading.

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
