FSA presented a stage reading of the short play Two Illustious Lunatics or the Universal Divergence (Dos Ilustres Lunáticos o la Divergencia Universal) written by Argentine Poet Leopoldo Lugones (1874-1938) published in 1909 in his famous book Lunario Sentimental.
The American actor and artistic director Grant Mudge and the British actor & practitioner Ben Crystal shared a magic night reading of the hilarious and witty Play.
