In Shirley, Vermont, Marty, an acting teacher, holds an “Adult Creative Drama” class at the local community center. The people who sign up for the class are Schultz, a recently divorced carpenter; Lauren, a reserved high school junior; Theresa, a former actress; and Marty’s husband James. Marty takes the “students” through various acting and dramatic exercises; they act like trees, beds, and baseball gloves. In one exercise, they act as one another and tell their life stories. As a possible romance begins each of the group slowly reveals themselves. In a final exercise, Lauren imagines herself meeting Schultz in 10 years and they tell each other what has transpired.
Roles – ages are approximate:
Auditions will involve reading from the script. Given that the play revolves around playing theater games, auditions and rehearsals will incorporate theater games as part of the experience, and not just as part of the script. Please come prepared to play.
