“The Fiery Sword of Justice”, a critically acclaimed comedy about how one business woman’s compulsive truth-telling torpedoed her career, will be staged at the historic Ancram Opera House on Saturday, June 3, at 3 pm as a benefit for the Roeliff Jansen Community Library.
The play is written and performed by Lauren Letelier. After a decades-long career in New York as an award-winning communications executive, Lauren is now a Hillsdale-based writer, actor, and voice artist as well as a volunteer at the library both at the circulation desk and on committees.
“The Fiery Sword of Justice” received rave reviews at the 2014 New York International Fringe Festival, where critics called it “Bold, funny, wise and brave … cannot be missed!” (StageBuddy.com); “An enlightening piece of work … wicked, sharp and funny!” (T2Conline.com) and “The most original piece … at the Fringe” (NYTheaterGuide.com).
Tickets are $25 and may be purchased by check at the library, or by going to http://www.roejanlibrary.org/ and clicking the “purchase online” link in the event description.
A reception with Ms. Letellier and director Martha Wollner will follow the performance.
