March 13, 14, 20, 21, 27 & 28, 2015 @ 8pm
From the author of THE HEIDI CHRONICLES, this 2005 play will have you picking sides. Woodson Bull III, aka “Third,” and Professor Laurie Jameson do not get along. She sees him as an entitled conservative, he sees her as liberal academic. When he submits a sophisticated essay on King Lear, she thinks he couldn’t possibly have written it and reports it as plagiarism. Who will you side with in this provocative he-said / she-said battle of words? Character info:

All who audition will be asked to perform a cold reading provided upon arrival. Prepared monologues are also welcome but not required. You will also need to fill out a conflict sheet indicating your availability for rehearsal starting Jan. 19 for the original play and Feb. 2 for THIRD. You may audition for one or both productions.
