Auditions: "Sunday on the Rocks" by Theresa Rebeck - March 1 2008

GroundWorks Theatre announces auditions for Theresa Rebeck's "Sunday on the Rocks," to be directed by Melissa Bedinger Hade. Auditions will be held on March 1, 2008, from 1:00-5:00pm, at the Darkhorse Theater. The play will run May 2-10, also at the Darkhorse.

Description: On a beautiful Sunday morning in mid-October, three housemates decide to have scotch for breakfast in this play by the author of "Spike Heels," "The Family of Mann,""Loose Knit," and "Bad Dates" (produced by GroundWorks Theatre in May 2007). Elly is pregnant and considering an abortion, Jen is being harassed by a co-worker who is obsessed with her, and Gayle just feels a bit lost. Their problems are compounded by a fourth roommate, Jessica, a religious young woman who has little compassion for their confused attempts to make sense of life in the 90s. As they drink, joke, and argue, it becomes clear how difficult it is to make a moral decision in an increasingly complex world.

"It's rare to encounter a domestic comedy that speaks to an entire generation, but 'Sunday on the Rocks' hits a raw nerve for today's generation of Angry Young Women." --Boston Globe.

Roles are available for four women, aged late 20s - late 30s. Appointments are not necessary, and auditions will be by cold readings from the script.
