Celebrated writers Anita Diamant and Stephen McCauley are widely known for their best-selling novels (The Red TentThe Object of My Affection), but they will be in West Bloomfield the weekend of Sept. 8-9 for something different—the professional premiere of “A Little Work,” a play they co-authored.

A Little Work is being presented by Two Muses Theatre from Sept. 7-30, 2012 at the  at 6800 Orchard Lake Rd, West Bloomfield. 

In connection with the performance, the authors will discuss the play and read from recent work at Barnes & Noble at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 8, prior to the performance, and will take questions from the audience following the 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Sept. 9.

The play, a comic mash up of “The Man Who Came to Dinner” and “Nip/Tuck”, has fun with celebrity, plastic surgery, the trials and tribulations of middle age, and the consolations of friendship. 

Diane Hill, co-founder of Two Muses Theatre and director of the show, said “The play is perfect for our company for several reasons: our mission is to provide opportunities for women in theater and to promote women artists and artisans. There are several rich roles for women in this play, and it’s a wonderfully lighthearted look at how women view themselves and the pressures they put on themselves to maintain physical beauty. I was intrigued that it was written by two well-known, distinguished authors, and upon reading it, found it delightfully funny as well as poignant. I think audiences will really enjoy it.”
