AUDITIONS for THE TOTALITARIANS & THE DROWNING GIRLS
2 Dark Comedies
THEATRE en BLOC is holding open auditions for THE TOTALITARIANS & THE DROWNING GIRLS
BY PETER SINN NACHTRIEB | Think this presidential election year, 2016, is nutty? This play is a raucous dark comedy about the state of modern political discourse, modern relationships and how easy it is to believe truths without facts. A laugh-out-loud night at the theatre that will shine a little perspective on the current political campaigns.
THE DROWNING GIRLS
BY BETH GRAHAM, CHARLIE TOMLINSON, DANIELA VLASKALIC | Reflecting on the misconceptions of love, married life, and the not-so-happily ever after, this soaking wet play is both a breathtaking fantasia and a social critique, full of rich images, a myriad of characters, and lyrical language.
