The Windham Theatre Guild will hold open auditions for Fool For Love by Sam Shepard on Monday July 16 and Tuesday July 17at the First Congregational Church, 199 Valley Street, Willimantic starting at 7:00pm.
In a run-down motel room on the edge of the Mojave Desert, Eddie comes to claim May, the young woman with whom he has had an tempestuous on-again, off-again relationship for the past 15 years, and who has sworn him off due to his frequent absences and love affairs. As the recriminations pour out, sometimes violently, the desperate nature of their relationship becomes apparent: they cannot get along with, or without, one another, yet neither can subdue their burning passion. Two other characters highlight their situation: a young man who is May’s date for the evening, and a ghostly old man who sits in a rocking chair at the side of the stage. The confrontation among them reveals themes of identity, truth, and destiny.
For the audition please wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to cold read from the script. Resumes and/or headshots are optional. Rehearsals will begin the week of July 30 and will be held Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, with additional rehearsals closer to performances. There are 3 male roles and 1 female role.
