Rehearsed Reading: ‘Park Bench’ by Antony Zaki




Always a sell-out, playwright and director Antony Zaki brings us a night of comedy and drama with a rehearsed reading of his play Park Bench.

The play:

A park bench brings two people together. It is a refuge for a man who uses it to escape from his life. It is a comfort for a girl in distress who stumbles upon it… and him. Can they comfort each other? Can they learn from one another? Or is it simply too late?

“A stranger is a friend you have not yet met”
