iambe theatre ensemble is pleased to announce auditions for George Brant's Into the Breeches!, directed by Lisa Dawn.
Synopsis: Oberon Play House's director and leading men are off at war. Determined to press on, the director's wife sets out to produce an all-female version of Shakespeare's Henriad, assembling an increasingly unexpected team united in desire, if not actual theatre experience. Together they deliver a delightful celebration of collaboration and persistence when the show must go on! A surprisingly modern and moving comedy about the singular way art and community reveal our boldest selves even in the darkest times.
