Auditions will be at the Limelight for Independence on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at 11:00am. Please prepare a one-minute serio-comic monologue, after which you will be asked to cold-read select scenes.
About the Show:
The setting is the small town of Independence, Iowa … the lifelong home of Evelyn Briggs. Her oldest daughter, Kess, is a university professor in Minneapolis. She has come home at the request of her sister, Jo, who is concerned for Evelyn’s mental health.
Kess, a professed lesbian, wants to cut her family ties once and for all. Jo, an incurable romantic and longtime virgin, has now become pregnant while Sherry, salty-tongued and amoral, wants only to finish high school so she can leave home for good.
In the end, there is no accommodation possible. Instead, only a kind of arbitrary independence for each of the protagonists as they come to realize that each must find her own heaven—or hell—in her own way.
