Tongue in Cheek Theater will adapt the popular novel The Inn at Lake Devine by Elinor Lipman into a full-length play over 2015, culminating with a three-week performance run October 7-24, 2015 in midtown NYC.

About The Inn at Lake Devine, The New York Times writes, "in her delightful novel, The Inn at Lake Devine, Elinor Lipman waltzes fearlessly though a minefield of identity politics. Anti-Semitism, intermarriage, ethnic cuisine and Anne Frank are some of the unlikely, loaded subjects of this witty romantic comedy."

TIC is thrilled to be adapting this work for the stage. Read the entire press release and follow TIC on Facebook and Twitter for updates to this exciting project!

Come to our staged reading of THE INN AT LAKE DEVINE, April 23 at 7 PM

As you may know from recent posts, TIC is developing a new full-length play adaptation of the popular novel, The Inn at Lake Devine by Elinor Lipman.

Today's read through added in several choral arrangements, led by Philip Rothman, including Christmas songs (sung with four-part harmony), a round in Hebrew, and an old-timey barbershop quartet rendition of "In the Good Ole Summertime."

March 22 table read of THE INN AT LAKE DEVINE
Equal parts coming-of-age, romantic comedy, and comedy of errors, the play follows a woman named Natalie Marx, from her teenage years to adulthood, examining the profound effect a single, dismissive letter has had upon her desire to stay at The Inn at Lake Devine.  While her mother says, "It isn't personal: they have a hotel, they don't want Jews, we're Jews," Natalie is determined to understand who is behind this statement and in the course of her pursuit, finds friendship and love.

Join us on Thursday, April 23 at 7 PM for a FREE staged reading of the play (followed by wine, nibbles and general hob-nobbing) at Shetler 1 at Shetler Studios, 244 West 54th Street, 12th Floor.  The run time will be about 2 hours, including a 10-minute intermission.
