"A Charity Case" Starring Alison Fraser, Alysia Reiner and Jill Shackner Began Previews Tonight

A CHARITY CASE starring two-time Tony Nominee Alison Fraser, Alysia Reiner (Sideways) and Jill Shackner (Les Miserables) began previews on Friday, October 28th at The Clurman Theatre (410 West 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues). This new play about adoption is written and directed by Australian playwright Wendy Beckett. Opening night is set for Wednesday, November 2nd.

Is it possible to find yourself when you don’t understand where you came from? A young girl struggles to come of age while caught in an endless tug of war between her loyalty to the imperfect woman who took her in and her curiosity about the troubled woman who gave her away. A CHARITY CASE delves deeply into the entanglements between a biological mother, an adoptive mother and their 17-year-old daughter.

The playing schedule for A CHARITY CASE is as follows: Tuesdays at 7pm, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8pm, with matinees on Saturday at 2pm and Sundays at 3PM. Tickets are $35. For tickets call Telecharge at (212) 239-6200 or visit

I thought both the acting and the play itself were fabulous.

The roles played by each of the actresses came across as very real.

Excellent play! Go See it!
