AUDITIONS – IN A WORD – 1/5/20 at 7pm

In A Word
by Lauren Yee
Directed by Christine Crawfis
Audition Date: January 5, 2020 at 2pm

Grief and comedy collide in this lyrical, absurdist journey on how to get over, get around and get through what haunts you. Today is the two-year anniversary of Fiona’s son’s disappearance, and still, nothing makes sense to her. Not her blasé husband, the incompetent detective, or the neighborhood kidnapper who keeps introducing himself in the checkout line. As Fiona delves back into her memories of that fateful day, to uncover that crucial missing piece, grief and comedy collide, and ordinary turns of phrase take on dangerous new meanings.
