The Hampton Theatre Company will hold open auditions for “Good People," Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire's tough and tender new play about the insurmountable divide between those who make it and those who don't, and the moral dilemmas both sides face. Auditions are Sunday, August 12 from 6-8 p.m. and Monday, August 13 from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at the Quogue Community Hall on Jessup Avenue in Quogue. "Good People" contains roles for 4 women and 2 men. Both union and non-union actors are invited to attend.
HTC is seeking actors for the roles of: MARGARET (white, 45-50), a tough-cookie-with-a-heart-of-gold, down on her luck single mother from South Boston; MIKE (white, 45-50), a successful fertility doctor who escaped Margaret's South Boston neighborhood and is not eager to be reminded of his past; JEAN (white, 45-50), Margaret's tough as nails friend, the "mouthy from Southie"; STEVIE (white, late 20s), the manager of a dollar store, the son of an old friend of Margaret's; KATE (African-American, 30s), Mike's English professor wife, kind, beautiful, and well-educated.
Rehearsals for “Good People" begin September 10, with performances running from October 25 through November 11, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons, at the Quogue Community Hall. Sarah Hunnewell directs.
