A second show with Academy Award-winning actress Sally Field has been added for 8:30 p.m. Aug. 22 to the 2017 Cabaret Series produced by Rick Murray for The Crown & Anchor resort.

Her Aug. 21 appearance sold out quickly, so Murray added a second “evening of conversation” because of “overwhelming demand,” according to an announcement today.

The show is called “From Madeleine Sherwood to Amanda Wingfield: Film Clips and Conversation with Sally Field.” She will sit down with author/interviewer Kevin Sessums to discuss what an announcement of the show describes as “Tennessee Williams, wimples, winning Oscars and why she’s still so f***ing fabulous after a career spanning over 50 years!”

The show will take place in the Paramount Room of the Crown; tickets are $100 to $150.

Field, 70, won Oscars for “Places in the Heart” and “Norma Rae.” Her most recent film was “Hello, My Name is Doris,” and she was just nominated for a Tony Award for starring as Amanda Wingfield in Williams’ “A Glass Menagerie” on Broadway.

Field began her career in 1964 in TV’s “Gidget,” then starred in “The Flying Nun” in 1967. Her other TV work includes “Sybil,” “A Woman of Independent Means,” and the series “Brothers & Sisters” from 2006 to 2011. Her dozens of films include “Forrest Gump,” “Steel Magnolias,” “Smokey and the Bandit,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “The Amazing Spiderman” and its sequel, “Punchline” and “Murphy’s Romance.” She has also directed for TV and film.

In September 2015, Field received the National Medal of Arts from President Obama. She has three sons and five grandchildren.

Proceeds from the Cabaret Series will benefit the True Colors Fund, co-founded by Cyndi Lauper to use advocacy, training and other means to work to end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth.

That series includes comedian Margaret Cho; the Provincetown debut of Broadway actor Brian Stokes Mitchell; actress Linda Lavin; comedian/actress Sandra Bernhardt; singer Courtney Love and Todd Almond; Broadway performers Billy Porter and Linda Eder; actor Leslie Jordan; and cabaret performers Seth Sikes and Kim David Smith.

Maura Tierney cast in CCTP ‘Continuity’ reading

Maura Tierney, most recently seen in Showtime’s “The Affair” has been added to the cast of the July 13-15 readings of Beth Wohl’s “Continuity” for Cape Cod Theatre Project in Falmouth.

Besides her Golden Globe-winning role as Helen Solloway in “The Affair,” Tierney is known to TV audiences from “ER” and “News Radio,” plus the Jim Carrey-starring movie “Liar, Liar.”

“Continuity” will be directed by Rachel Chavkin, who was nominated for a Tony Award this year for Broadway’s “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812,” which had an earlier run at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge.

CCTP develops plays over days of rehearsing, then three nights of readings and audience talkbacks with the writer and cast. Wohl’s “Continuity” is about the making of a disaster movie about climate change that’s going terribly wrong. Wohl and Chavkin are due to talk July 11 at West Falmouth Library as part of the group’s weekly Stage Talk series.

CCTP’s  four-week season at Falmouth Academy opens July 6-8 with John Cariani’s “cul de sac,” a comedy about three families who go to great lengths who try to be, or at least seem, happy. Cariani is known both as a playwright (the popular “Almost, Maine,” also developed at CCTP) and an actor (Broadway’s “Something Rotten” and the soon-to-transfer to Broadway “The Visit”).

Other plays in the 2017 season: July 20-22: “How to Load a Musket,” by Talene Monahon, who uses the words of historical reenactors of the Revolutionary and and Civil Wars to explore how patriotism, love of history and escapism affect why they do what they do; and July 27-29: “East of West Town,” by Cusi Cram, dubbed “an Airbnb thriller” and comedy about people and countries colliding after an idealistic young woman from Chicago returns home from Greece with a “peculiar” Airbnb guest in her spare room.
