"The Watched Pot" Play Seeks Kids & Teenager
Audition for "The Watched Pot" Play. Looking for young performers ages 6+. Please see the details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE ACCEPTED. About the project: The Watched Pot, winner of the 1983 Jane Chambers Memorial International Gay Playwrights Award, tells a sensitive story about two women, Mary and Sarah, who have bucked convention to buy a farm and live together for 60 years. Relatives refer to them as “God’s leftover blessings.” Audra, Sarah’s only niece, and her family travel to the farm on weekends, reluctantly seeing the old aunt’s dying process. Like the watched pot, the end never seems to come quickly enough. Only Kirk, the 16-year-old nephew, has real affection for Sarah and Mary and their relationship. He faces a coming-out process of his own. “The Watched Pot is about facing dying and facing life,” Hershberger says, “ I don’t think people understand what love is if they can’t trust someone else’s idea of it.” Additional info: This is a non-equity production. Copies of the script are attached. Stage the play from Jan. 26 to Feb. 4. If interested, please apply.
