AUDITIONS SET BY STRAND THEATER FOR DRAMA ABOUT AGING

AUDITIONS: 

WELL
By Lisa Kron

WHEN: Sunday, February 26, at 6 PM
WHERE: Strand Theater, 1823 N. Charles Street, Baltimore
Rehearsals for Well will begin late March / early April, 2012. The Play will be directed by Rain Pryor. The show runs June 1- 16, 2012.

About Well: Noted solo performer Lisa has written her first multi-character play, a riff on her and her mother Ann’s knotty history with chronic illness. But as she presents her story, nothing goes to plan. Ann won’t stay put in her recliner. The chorus can’t keep track of their scenes. Childhood nemesis Lori Jones keeps popping up. As Lisa struggles to maintain control of the show and herself, she confronts her greatest fear: turning into her mother.
