Auditions in San Antonio for The Flu Season by Will Eno, Proxy Theatre, March 16, 2013
Auditions for The Flu Season, Saturday, March 16, 2013, 12:00pm until 3:00pm
This production is the third of Proxy's second season, The Leper Colony, a season concerning those who society has labeled dangerously contagious or generally unwanted. It will be directed by Artistic Director, Aaron Aguilar, director of Red Light Winter, End Days, and most recently, Mike Greenberg's short play, Max & Maggie, as part of Northwest Vista's Black Boxer Shorts.
Will Eno's The Flu Season is the beautiful tale of two psych ward patients who want to love each other, but struggle to figure out how. Plus the story of their doctor and a nurse who in turn harbor love for each other. Plus two narrators, Prologue and Epilogue, who try their best to objective storytellers. The language of the play is richly poetic, each character is filled with complex emotion and desire, and there are no minor roles.
