Selected Shorts: An Evening with David Mitchell
Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space
In a rare New York appearance, the wildly imaginative author of Cloud Atlas (coming soon as a film starring Tom Hanks) and The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, introduces fiction of his own and stories by Michel Faber and Claire Keegan, performed by Campbell Scott (Damages, Royal Pains), Patricia Kalember (Don't Dress for Dinner) and Daniel Gerroll (The Starter Wife).
"Mitchell's gripping and innovative fictions are set everywhere from contemporary Japan and London to the 19th-century South Seas to California in the 1970s to dystopic distant futures - sometimes all in the same novel." - The New York Times
