Back to All Non-Equity Listings




Rhode Island's oldest community theater, The Community Players, currently celebrating its 100th season, will hold auditions for the World Premiere of A Tree Falls In Brookline by David Christner, an Award-winning Rhode Island playwright, on Wednesday, December 8 and Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 7:00pm at Jenks Auditorium, 350 Division Street, Pawtucket, RI, (across from McCoy Stadium). Sign-in will begin at 6:30 pm. (All auditioning must be signed in by 7:30 pm.)


A Tree Falls in Brookline tells the story of Cormac “Mac” McIntyre, a largely unproduced and unrecognized playwright whose work is beginning to get some recognition, when a tree falls in Brookline, leaving him with a traumatic brain injury and only a shadowy recollection of his identity. Mac’s roller coaster ride through his tumultuous past to discover who he is in the present is a trip you won’t soon forget.


Director Richard Griffin is looking for a diverse cast of men and women, ages 40-70, to fill the following roles:


Gwendolyn Fairfax:            60, heiress & patron of the arts

Ripley Randolph:             60ish, Mac’s pal and agent

Dr. Alex Warner:             44, a neurosurgeon

Margaret Hiller:              40ish or so, a VA nurse

Cormac McIntyre:           73, an obscure playwright

Allison McIntyre:            63, Mac’s estranged wife

Dr. Anna Floyd:              50, a neuropsychologist

Wiley Henry:                  40, Allison’s son, a lawyer

Nora Ellis:                      54, A.D. of a Boston theater

Frank Pearson:                55, a professor of theatre


All roles are open.  


The audition will consist of cold readings from the script.  Rehearsals will be held three times a week (days to be determined). Please come prepared with potential rehearsal conflict dates and times (evenings, weekends, vacation periods, etc.).


Please note all auditioning will need to show proof of vaccination for Covid 19, along with an official government issued identification.


A Tree Falls in Brookline will be produced at Jenks Auditorium on February 18, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27, 2022.
