Our 2014 season begins with:

WE WERE NOTHING! by Will Arbery, directed by Bastion Carboni, December 2013

PEOPLE WILL TALK ABOUT YOU SOMETIMES by Sarah Matusek, directed by Lindsey Sikes, January – February 2014

Inspired by Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis, PEOPLE WILL TALK ABOUT YOU SOMETIMES tracks a supportive network of otherwise strangers who respond to a mutual friend’s suicide attempt. PEOPLE WILL TALK will premiere at Salvage Vanguard Theatre as part of FronteraFest Long Fringe in January 2014. The play will be extended 1-2 weeks beyond the initial run in an alternative space. Cast must be available through mid February.

In addition to staging rehearsals in January, the cast will be asked to aid in the development process of this new play during November and December for approximately 1 reh/week (no holiday rehearsals). Actors interested in devised work strongly (SO STRONGLY) encouraged to audition!
