Reading of ‘Last Will’
Suffolk University will stage a reading of Robert Brustein’s play “The Last Will’’ on April 11 at its Modern Theatre. Academy Award-winning actor F. Murray Abraham will join a cast composed of actors from Boston’s Actor’s Shakespeare Project. “The Last Will’’ is the third play of Brustein’s trilogy about the life and work of William Shakespeare. The Modern produced the first play in the trilogy, “The English Channel,’’ and plans to produce Brustein’s second, “Mortal Terror,’’ as well. After the April reading, Modern director Marilyn Plotkins hopes eventually to do the same with “Last Will.’’ Brustein, the founder of the American Repertory Theater, is a Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Suffolk.
