Only In My Dreams Events is pleased to announce that two-time Tony nominee Alison Fraser will star in a staged reading of Squeamish, a solo psychological horror play by renowned playwright Aaron Mark on Saturday, October 6 at 8:00 pm. The reading will be performed in the historic Stables at The Mount, Edith Wharton’s Home, 2 Plunkett Street, Lenox.
Alison Fraser is a nationally acclaimed performer who has appeared on Broadway, off-Broadway and in concert at venues including Carnegie Hall, the White House and Town Hall in New York City. Best known for her Tony nominated performances as Martha in The Secret Garden and Josefina/Monica in Romance/Romance, Fraser was also the original Trina in William Finn’s March of the Falsettos and In Trousers at Playwrights Horizons and was Tessie Tura in Gypsy with Patti Lupone, among many other celebrated appearances.
In Squeamish, which the New York Times called “a ghoulish new play,” Fraser plays Sharon, a psychoanalyst and long-time recovering alcoholic from the Upper West Side who finds herself in the South Plains of Texas —“off her meds, after her nephew’s suicide.” What happens next in this darkly creepy one-woman show features overtones of Edgar Allan Poe that will have to be experienced to be believed. For her starring role in the acclaimed Off-Broadway production of Squeamish, Fraser received nominations for an Outer Critics Circle Award and The Off-Broadway Alliance Award.
