Drama Works Auditions for “Independence” by Lee Blessing

Drama Works Theatre Company, 323 Boston Post Road in Old Saybrook, Ct. will be holding auditions for “Independence” on Friday February 10th from 6 to 8 PM and Saturday the 11th from noon to 2 PM. Callbacks, if needed will be Sunday at noon.
The audition will consist of readings from the script. Rehearsals start on March 13th and performances are April 28th and 29th and May 5th, 6th and 7th.

We will be casting three female actors able to portray:

EVELYN BRIGGS is the kind of whacky 53 year-old mother of three daughters. She volunteers at the mental hospital where she recently was a patient. Her middle daughter, Jo is concerned about her mental state.

JO is Evelyn’s 25 year-old daughter. She is an incurable romantic and commited virgin who has now found herself pregnant.

SHERRY is a 19 year-old, salty tongued and amoral high school senior who just wants to finish high school so she can leave home for good.
