September 13 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Lamb Room

The Address tells two, eventually intertwining, stories that take place 100 years apart. In 1884, Sara Smythe is head housekeeper at London’s Langham Hotel when she accepts an offer to work at the Dakota, just opening in the wilds of Manhattan’s Upper West Side. In 1985, Bailey Camden is desperate for new opportunities. Fresh out of rehab, the former party girl and interior designer is homeless, jobless, and penniless.

One hundred years apart, Sara and Bailey are both tempted by and struggle against the golden excess of their respective ages and take refuge and solace in the Upper West Side’s gilded fortress.
