The new comedy will receive an October 21 New York City industry reading.
Producers Ken Davenport, John Yonover, and Hunter Arnold are presenting a New York City industry reading of Scooter Pietsch’s comedy Windfall, about a group of work colleagues who have to share a $300 million lotto jackpot.
Tony and Emmy winner Jason Alexander (Seinfeld, Fish in the Dark) directs and stars in the October 21 reading that will also feature Justin Bartha (The Hangover), Brandon J. Dirden (All The Way), Heather Lind (Turn: Washington’s Spies), Allison Mack (Smallville), and Tony winner Michele Pawk (Crazy for You).
The play had its premiere last summer at Arkansas Repertory Theatre.
“At a small data processing business in Columbus, Ohio, four coworkers toil under the heavy hand of their maniacal and deceitful boss,” according to press notes. “Desperate to escape they put it all on the line, betting every last cent they have playing the lottery. But the possibility of sharing the $300 million jackpot brings out the hysterically worst in these best friends.”
