Airmid Theatre’s latest play, “A Little Betrayal Among Friends,” will open Wednesday at Nissequogue River State Park in Kings Park.

Based on a play by 16th century Spanish playwright Maria de Zayas y Sotomayor, the comedy will be performed five days a week through Aug. 14. All shows are free.

The original play was adapted and translated into English by Caridad Svich and directed by Tricia McDermott, Airmid’s producing artistic director and founder.

McDermott describes the play as a cross between Shakespeare and “Sex and the City.” The play contains mature themes and racy language.

Airmid Theatre was founded in 2000 and specializes in classic plays written by women. This is the third year that the group is staging a play at Nissequogue River State Park, off St. Johnland Road about three miles east of Sunken Meadow Parkway.

Audiences should bring chairs or blankets to the outdoor performance.

The play is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 3 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, call 631-704-2888 or email
