Auditions: "O Jerusalem" by A. R. Gurney

GroundWorks Theatre announces auditions for A. R. Gurney's "O Jerusalem," to be directed by Melissa Bedinger Hade. Auditions will be held on Saturday, March 21 2009, from 1:00 - 5:00pm. The play will run May 15-30 2009, also at the Darkhorse.

Set in 2001, the play centers around Hartwell, an oil company executive, appointed to a diplomatic post in the Middle East. Amira is a Christian Palestinian woman with whom he had an affair years before. Sally, a friend of Hartwell's, is a fellow bureacrat attempting to help him navigate the treacherous waters of his new post. Hartwell reunites with his former lover, discovers she has a son in Hamas, and agrees to help put forth a peace proposal of their creation. And, looming over the proceedings, is the rumor of a planned terrorist attack on U.S. soil...

Roles are available for 2 men (30s-50s), 2 women (30s-50s), and one specifically Middle-Eastern woman, also 30s-50s. Appointments are not necessary, headshots and resumes are helpful but not required, and auditions will be by cold readings from the script.
