The Meeting House Players Holding Auditions

In Chester CT Events, Theatre on September 5, 2010 at 11:00 am

The Meeting House Players are excited to announce open auditions for their upcoming production of Douglas Post’s film noir style mystery “Earth and Sky”.  The auditions will be held at the Meeting House located at 4 Liberty Street in Chester, CT at 7pm on September 8th and September 10th, 2010.

“Earth and Sky” is a poetic thriller about a would-be poet and part-time librarian named Sara McKeon who’s lover of ten weeks, David Ames, is found dead one hot August morning in the city of Chicago.  It appears that David, owner and manager of an expensive art-deco restaurant, may have been involved in several illicit activities including kidnapping, rape and murder.  Unable to believe the man she gave her heart to was a killer, and outraged that the police seemed to have closed the book on the case, Sara begins her own investigation of the crime and is led deeper and deeper through an urban labyrinth into a contemporary underworld.  As the detective story moves forward in time, scenes from the love affair take us back to the moment when Sara and David first met.  Finally the plots converge and Sara finds herself face to face with the person who murdered her beloved.  The cast includes six men, late 20’s to mid 50’s, and three women, early 20’s to mid 40’s.   Directed by Debbie Alldredge, the production dates will be October 29 & 30 and November 5, 6, 12 & 13.   Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script.
