The Blank Theatre’s Living Room Series presents a staged reading of Diane Baia Hale’s full-length drama The Rake of His Heart directed by Andrew Lynford. The performance will take place at 8:00 p.m., Monday, February 18, at The Blank’s 2nd Stage Theatre, 6500 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood, CA. $15 suggested donation.
The Rake of His Heart was inspired by the true story of the unlikeliest spy of WWII: April in Paris and love is in the air, but so is the sound of Nazi jackboots. Posing as the female chanteuse L’Hirondelle by night, working with American Oss officer Virginia Hall by day, Denis Rake—a homosexual British actor lives dangerously enough. But when Max Halder, a gay German colonel, falls for him the stakes soar even higher.
