Special Audition: The Langhorne Players

I received a request for help from my friend Stephanie. It was not a personal plea: she is trying to help two of her friends finish casting a play at the Langhorne Players. Stephanie knows these directors personally and speaks well of them. Hey, if Steph vouches for them personally and artistically, that is more than enough for me. So, if you are a Bucks/Montgomery County actor who fits the description below -- and there is time in your schedule -- I urge you to contact Tom and Scott for the audition.

Via email:
Friends of mine are in need of an actor for this play. They are truly talented directors, and this is a fantastic role (the actor cast was a pro who got offered a well paying gig, but left them in a pinch) and I hope some of you can help. If you know anyone who may be interested (esp. in the Bucks area!), please let them know. Thanks so much and I hope all of you are well.

Play Information
The Busy World is Hushed by Keith Bunin
Opens May 30

Hannah, a minister and bible scholar, finds her faith at odds with that of Thomas, her gay estranged, wayward son. But when an inquisitive young gay writer hired to assist Hannah with her latest publication learns painful secrets from Hannah?s past, she spies a risky, unconventional opportunity for reconciliation. This richly spiritual work transcends the surface-level examination of devotion it initially seems to be and instead asks real questions about the place of religion in today's, well, busy world.

Theatre is located in Newtown, Bucks County.
