Reader’s Theater presents The Crimes of Diana Eastlake
A New Play
Written by Mort Paterson, author and notable area actor.
Diana Eastlake, a once-wealthy Manhattan widow, has just learned that her daughter, Molly, is being held for ransom by terrorists in Syria. Raising the huge sum demanded requires of Diana the most wrenching of legal and moral decision-making, fraught with perils for both her and her daughter. As Diana sets out to deal with this seemingly insurmountable challenge, fate conspires to place many confounding obstacles across her path. How this heretofore genteel, unflappable lady summons her innermost resources to confront these roadblocks is the subject of this timely and morally compelling play. Can love for her daughter guide her safely through the crucial choices she must make at every turn?
