Director Rich Rand has announced audition information for Good People, the fourth staged reading of the 2013-2014 Staged Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. David Lindsay-Abaire wrote the script.
Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month's paycheck covers last month's bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who's made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.
Auditions will Wednesday, Dec. 11 from 6:30-9:00 p.m. at the Civic Theatre office, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette. Actors will be asked to read from the script, which is available to be checked out from the office.
The staged reading of Good People will be Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street – the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette.
It is a Pay What You Can event, and it will be followed immediately by a question-and-answer session between the cast, the director and the audience.
