Yankee Tavern
by Steven Dietz
Directed by Kit Colbourn

Performances: March 2 at 8pm & March 3 at 2pm

Auditions: Sunday, January 13,  2019 (2pm – 5pm)

The second production in our new CP2 Reader’s Theatre program. It’s 2006, people are still dealing with the physical and emotional fallout from 9/11. The “Yankee Tavern” is an old neighborhood joint in lower Manhattan, a place that was hopping in the forties, now doling out its final shots before the crash of the wrecking ball. Adam is the proprietor, his buddy Ray the barkeep. The occasional quiet stranger drops in, but they generally have the place to themselves. The jukebox died on September 11, 2001 at 8:46 am, when the first plane hit the World Trade Center… Ray’s reflexive conspiracy theories drive the conversation, but take on an air of legitimacy as the play unfolds.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
8-10 rehearsals.


Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to audition.
