Based on the true story of New York writer Helene Hanff, in search of obscure books, who begins a correspondence with Frank Doel, chief buyer of an antiquarian bookseller in London, England. Through their lively correspondence from 1949 to 1971, they develop a deep friendship.

What is a Staged Reading?:
Staged Readings are different from regular plays or musicals in that actors and actresses perform with scripts in hand, with minimal set, props and blocking. They are an excellent choice for actors that want to get their feet wet acting but do not have a lot of time to devote to a full show. There are typically only a few rehearsals and just one performance where actors are not required to memorize the material. All Center Stage Jackson Staged Readings are currently FREE to the public and located at several locations in the Jackson community.
