A new play based on her acclaimed novel
Directed by Michelle Alexander
Performance Dates: September 2 – October 6, 2012
Auditioning for these roles:
HELEN (mid-50s): single mother in her 50s who was widowed in the Ocean Ranger disaster of 1982.
JOHN (early to mid-30s): Helen’s son. He was nine years old when his father died; he is now a (reluctant) expectant father.

DAVE/TAXI DRIVER/RED/COACH (40s – 60s male): Four roles for a physically and vocally flexible actor.
Please prepare a short (2 – 3 min) monologue. You may also be asked to read from the script. Copies of the script are available at the Toronto Reference Library, 5th floor, Performing Arts Desk or at Theatre Ontario. A copy of the script can also be sent to you electronically. Please bring your photo and résumé to the audition.
To Book an Audition Time: Email GoAlumnae@gmail.com or leave a message at 416-364-4170 ext. 3.
Location: Alumnae Theatre, 70 Berkeley Street (SW corner of Berkeley and Adelaide St. East).
Reminder: This is a non-Equity/ACTRA and non-paying engagement.
One last thing: I mentioned this is a WORLD PREMIERE, right? That means that if you get a role, the published editions of this play will forever after include *your name* in that section at the beginning which lists the cast of the first production. How cool is that?
