On Monday night, November 9, at 7:00PM, Connecticut Heritage Productions, will join theaters, libraries, and colleges nationwide in the simultaneous staged readings of The Other Woman, a full-length, one-act play adapted from five essays appearing in the bestselling anthology The Other Woman: Twenty-one Wives, Lovers, and Others Talk Openly About Sex, Deception, Love, and Betrayal. Co-producers Cynthia Comsky and Victoria Zackheim (anthology editor and playwright) have engaged the participation of artistic directors across the country, including experimental as well as traditional theaters, schools and libraries reflecting the diversity of our population in the United States.
