Letter To a Young Lady in Paris Auditions

Ladies! Zach Libresco ’13 and Bennett Kirschner ’13 — you might have seen their work together on True West – invite you to come audition for their original adaptation of Julio Cortazar’s short story, “Letter to a Young Lady in Paris”:

The show is a 30-minute celebratory romp that we are hoping to put up the weekend of February 7th, and there are only two characters. Themes of the play include the translation, the concept of order, vomited bunnies, and the intoxicating nature of be-bop jazz, all promising to make for a strange, experimental, collaborative rehearsal process. Please come join us tomorrow for auditions in Fayerweather 106 from 12-2PM. No need to have anything prepared — the audition should only be 10 minutes of exercises and readings. We look forward to meeting you. For questions, please e-mail bkirschner@wesleyan.edu.

Date: December 9th
Time: 12:00-2:00 PM
Place: Fayerweather 106
