Cottage Theatre holds auditions for West Coast Premiere of Seeking Red
Cottage Grove, OR — Cottage Theatre will hold open auditions on March 15 at 6:00 pm for the West Coast premiere of a gripping new drama about truth and identity. Seeking Red, written by Chicago playwright Glenn B. Rust and directed by Kory Weimer, will be the third production in Cottage Theatre's 2020 season, running for three weekends June 5 - 21. Auditions will be held at the theatre, located at 700 Village Drive in Cottage Grove.
Seeking Red centers around a young woman named Grey Rhodes. Grey has been raised by her Uncle Ty ever since she was a baby, when her single mother was run over by a semi-truck — or so Grey has been told. Now in her early twenties, she works as an intern at The Seattle Times, where she’s assigned to work on a story about the “Innocence Project.” She interviews Cecil, who was recently released from prison after DNA evidence proved him innocent of the murder of his two younger sisters. As Grey learns more about Cecil’s ordeal, she is struck by inconsistencies in her uncle’s account of her mother’s death. She begins to wonder if there is far more to her mother’s story than she knows. Seeking Red is an exciting new script from a playwright who grew up at Cottage Theatre. This intriguing drama will cause you to question the “little white lies” we tell to protect those we love.
Roles are available for 5 to 8 actors, and the audition will consist of readings from the script. No appointment is necessary. Character descriptions and further audition details are available at www.cottagetheatre.org.
