And speaking of time, this year, timing means everything. In honor of our 11th year, we’re presenting The Eleventh Hour, when anything can happen in the final moment. We’ll be spotlighting stories about people in a bit of a “time crunch.” To put it bluntly, they’re all a matter of life and death.
There’s Columbia workshop’s Meridian 7-1212, a real-time drama about a female “speaking clock” whose brother is due to die at midnight; in Defense Attorney, Martha Bryant, attempts to save a juvenile accused of murder; a strange disease causes a man’s dilemma in Dead Ernest; and 3 O’Clock is a countdown to destruction. Tales well-calculated to keep you in suspense.
Some important notes:
Because of limited facilities in the SAG-AFTRA building, auditions for Meridian 7-1212 are from 4 – 9 p.m. only.
Please note: This is an unpaid stage performance presented to an audience.
There are only 60 face-to-face time slots. However, you may always submit MP3 auditions under 10mb to the directors at these addresses:
Karen Beyer (Meridian 7-1212): firstname.lastname@example.org
