Tony Award-winner Lemon Andersen will debut his new play, "ToasT," in East Hampton during a one-night-only staged reading at Guild Hall on Thursday, August 14, 2014. In "ToasT," Andersen presents a riveting show about men trying to be free in a system determined to keep them locked away.

The play is set in 1971 at New York State's Attica Prison and follows prisoner Willie Green, a.k.a. Dolomite, who discovers he is being paroled after serving 27 years for murder. At a turning point in American history, Dolomite is forced to decide weather to stand with his cellmates in the infamous Attica uprising or to secure his own freedom.

The cast is lead by Emmy Award-winner Keith David and the ensemble includes Andre DeShields, Tony Plana, Hill Harper, Colman Domingo, Kevin Mambo, Armando Riesco and Peter McRobbie.

Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street in East Hampton. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.guildhall.org.

Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didn’t change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
