Audition Notice

Written by Gina Gionfriddo
Directed by Maurizio Giammarco
September 23, 24, 25
October   1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9

After grad school, Catherine and Gwen chose polar opposite paths.  Catherine built a career as a rock star academic, while Gwen built a home with her husband and children. Decades later, unfulfilled in polar opposite ways, each woman covets the other's life, commencing a game of musical chairs--the prize being Gwen's husband. With insight and wit, this comedy is an unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of 20th-century feminist ideals.
