Fall 2017 Black Box Production

Coyote on a Fence

By Bruce Graham, Directed by Paige Tufford

AUDITION DATES
Friday & Saturday, July 28-29, 7 PM
Black Box Theater, GB 168

DESCRIPTION
Bobby Reyburn is a funny young guy who loves to do impressions. He's also a member of the Aryan nation, a racist predator convicted of a horrific crime. John Brennan is educated and arrogant, a serious writer who may only be guilty of doing society a favor. As each awaits his fate, one evokes sympathy, the other derision. In vivid scenes, this play explores the disturbing question: Can one be innocent though proven guilty? This penetrating drama offers no clear verdict, just utterly compelling theatre. (from Dramatists Play Service)

"Does a lousy upbringing excuse heinous crimes? Is there room for mercy and repentance within the judicial system? And if Americans really knew the inhabitants of death row, would they want to see them die? Worthy questions...a provocative subject and a literate sensibility" - Variety. "The language is as precise as it is profane, provoking both troubling thought and the occasional cheerful laugh...[COYOTE ON A FENCE] will change you a little before it lets go of you." - Cincinnati CityBeat. "...excellent theater in every way..." - Philadelphia City Paper.

Fall 2017 Mainstage Production

The Government Inspector

Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher from the original by Nikolai Gogol Directed by Mary Matzke

AUDITION DATES
Tuesday & Wednesday, Aug. 29-30, 7-10 PM,
Dart Auditorium

DESCRIPTION
When the locals in a small Russian hamlet learn that an undercover government inspector is coming for a surprise visit, an unfortunate case of mistaken identity sends the whole village spiraling into a world of panic and greed. Witty, smart and wildly satirical, this timely and spirited adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's classic play exposes the corruption of a provincial town with biting hilarity. (from Dramatists Play Service)

"...a comedy of galumphing, harrumphing hilarity. One part farce, one part slapstick, with a dash of musical theater, this naughty, frothy play is wholly entertaining...[A] clever, fearless script...[The] characters feel contemporary in a show where official ignorance and incompetence are compounded by corruption and hubris." - Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN).

AUDITIONS
Cold readings from the script. Perusal scripts are available at the library on the second floor. They must remain in the library so reserve an hour of your time to read it.
