Open Space Arts seeks three actors for two classic one-act plays from Sunsets on the Beach by Cal Yoemans. These plays, last performed in Chicago in 1982, offer an intimate exploration of human sexuality and relationships from the pre-AIDS era. Kevin Wood directs the production.
Play One is a monologue featuring Henrietta, an aging drag star whose life has taken a turbulent turn. This character's journey delves into the complexities of gay life with heavy yet authentic language-the possibility of live singing scene but dependent on final casting.
Play Two explores the relationship between two men:
Dan: (20s to 30s) A construction worker on a quest of self-discovery through anonymous encounters.
John: (40 or older) professor type who frequents a local rest area and who forges a deep connection with Dan.
Both roles require dance and movement skills and nudity.
For sides and additional details, please get in touch with Kevin at KevinSunsets@yahoo.com, as these plays are currently unpublished.
Full rehearsal schedule details will be provided during callbacks. We aim to offer flexibility in scheduling daytime and nighttime rehearsals to accommodate our cast members.
This is a unique opportunity to participate in thought-provoking theater that tackles complex themes with authenticity. We look forward to your auditions and the chance to collaborate on these compelling productions.
