Sex with Strangers By Laura Eason

(auditions sides posted at top)

directed by Jim Covault

When twenty-something star sex blogger and memoirist Ethan tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure forty-ish novelist Olivia, in the middle of a blizzard, they find they each crave what the other possesses. As attraction turns to sex, and they inch closer to getting what they want, the truth comes out and both must confront the dark side of ambition and the trouble of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away.

Roles

Open to both Equity and Non-Equity. All roles are open to all ethnicities. EMC points may be received for Non-Equity performers. Non-Equity performers are paid for rehearsal and performances.

Ethan - 28, then 30. Very charismatic, sexy, a fast talker, used to being the center of attention. From Chicago but has little to no specific accent.
*The role of Olivia has been pre-cast.

The Royal Society of Antarctica By Mat Smart

(auditions sides posted at top)

directed by Lee Trull

Dee, a young woman seeking to understand her mother’s disappearance, joins the ranks of a ragtag group of misfits and scientists who serve at McMurdo Station in Antarctica. Amidst janitorial duties, never-ending daylight, and subzero temperatures, this lonely and rugged bunch finds an escape from the world and a home for each other. A striking and luminous story about why we run away and what happens when we finally come face to face with what we’ve been running away from.
