Directed by James Warwick
Performances June 25- July 6
First Rehearsal June 2

About: Gideon has disappeared. His sister, June; his mother, Lilian; and Nathan, his father’s business partner, come to a hotel room in Rome seeking answers. As their stories unfold, weaving back and forth in time, a complex web of relationships is revealed. And yet, the essential mystery – why did Gideon vanish – remains.

Seeking:

NATHAN, around 60 – An economic theorist from the Midwest. Enthralled by his partner’s family.

The following roles have been CAST:

JUNE
Role CAST. Early 30s – Cultured and soulful. A tourist guide by trade, a vestal virgin by nature.

LILIAN
Role CAST. Around 60 – Cultured, sophisticated Upper East Side society woman of substance.

ANNAPURNA
by Sharr White
Directed by Robert Egan
Performances July 10-20
First rehearsal June 16

About: Twenty years ago, in the middle of the night, Emma walked out on Ulysses, taking their infant son. Now, hearing he’s in dire straits, she tracks him down in a trailer park on the high plains of Colorado. Their reunion is alternately comic and conflicted. And, the more they understand what drove them apart, the more they’re drawn together.

Seeking:

ULYSSES
mid-50’s – once a cowboy poet and university professor, now a fast-talking master of denial.

The rollowing role has been CAST:

EMMA
Role CAST. Mid-50s – An urbane, fierce, protective New Englander. Often selfless, but denies it.

Directed by Byam Stevens
Performances July 30 - August 10
First Rehearsal July 7

About: Bernard learns that he has been cloned. Shocked, he seeks an explanation from his father, Salter. But then, so do two other “sons”. Who is the original? Who are the clones? A fast-paced psychological thriller and a dark tale of a father’s love for his son.

Seeking:

SALTER
60 – An improviser. Without a shred of backbone. Always looking to game the system.

The following role has been CAST:

BERNARD
Role CAST. Late 30s – Also Bernard2 & Michael, clones. By turns earnest, frightening, content.

===============

THE AMISH PROJECT
By Jessica Dickey
Directed by Daniel Elihu Kramer
Performances August 14-24
First rehearsal July 21

About: A fictional exploration of the Nickel Mines Schoolhouse shooting, a tragedy in an Amish community. A one woman show in which the actress plays a host of characters – victims, community members, the gunman – some trapped in cycles of grief, others struggling to forgive.

The following role has been CAST:

THE ACTRESS
Role CAST. Late 20s – Garrulous child to cynical wife to Hispanic shopgirl. Requires both range and facility with rapidly changing characterizations.
