Please “buy a ticket” (it’s free) for an audition to help directors and stage managers ensure there are enough copies of scripts, time, audition forms, etc. at the audition sessions. It also helps us if you provide contact information here so we can reach you with audition results and future notices.

This is a black comedy! All characters will eventually need to speak with an Irish accent. The accent won’t be necessary for auditions but will be an important part of the on-going rehearsal process.

Production dates are Feb. 23 – March 10, 2018.
