Charles brings "Shanghai Moon" to Sag Harbor this June

Following up last summer's successful run of "The Lady In Question" at Bay Street Theatre, Charles will return this year with a revival of another of his hit plays.

Shanghai Moon
follows the American-born wife of an aged British diplomat who travels to Shanghai with her husband. She begins a fatal love affair with the mysterious General Gong Fei. It's based on such movie and stage melodramas as "The Bitter Tea of General Yen," "The Letter," The Green Hat, "The Cheat" and "Shanghai Express." It premiered Off-Broadway in 1999 at Theater for the New City. A 2003 production featured actor B.D. Wong.

Charles star as Lady Sylvia Allington. He will be joined onstage by friend and longtime collaborator, actress/comedienne Julie Halston. Carl Andress, who directed the 1999 and 2003 productions, and most recently, the Off-Broadway production of Die Mommie Die! will direct this production as well.

The revival will be presented at Bay Street Theatre from Tuesday, June 3, 2008 - Sunday, June 29, 2008.
