Incorruptible
By Michael Hollinger
Directed by Kit Colbourn

AUDITIONS: JUN 16 & 17, 2024 | 7pm

Welcome to Priseaux, France, c. 1250 A.D.

The river flooded again. The chandler’s shop just burned to the ground. Nobody’s heard of the wheelbarrow yet. And St. Foy, the patron of the local monastery, hasn’t worked a miracle in thirteen years. In other words, the Dark Ages still look dark. All eyes turn to the Pope, whose promised visit will surely encourage other pilgrims to make the trek and restore the abbey to its former glory. That is, until a rival church claims to possess the relics of St. Foy—and their bones are working miracles. All seems lost until the destitute monks take a lesson from a larcenous one-eyed minstrel, who teaches them an outrageous new way to pay old debts.

“Incorruptible was selected by CP summer of 2023, and is set in 1250 AD (the Dark Ages). Since it was selected, recent world events have transpired to make the play even more relevant. Incorruptible is a dark comedy; the playwright uses the power of humor to examine how frivolous and dangerous it is to amplify our external differences of faith. Underneath, our bones are all the same. There is much mention of the dead, of MANY faiths in this play. If this is of concern to you, this may not be the play for you.”

Perfect Arrangement
By Topher Payne
Directed by Sydnie Grosberg Ronga

AUDITIONS: AUG 4 & 5, 2024 | 7pm

It’s 1950, and new colors are being added to the Red Scare. Two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been tasked with identifying sexual deviants within their ranks. There’s just one problem: both Bob and Norma are involved in a carefully constructed cover-up.

Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the gay rights movement, Perfect Arrangement merges madcap sitcom-style laughs with provocative drama as two U.S. State Department employees struggle to maintain their cover – and their sanity – in mid-century America.

Setting: Washington DC, 1950
CAST
Bob Martindale – 30s/40s – WWII Vet – Solid man’s man. Good humored & well-mannered. Works at State Department.
Millie Martindale – late 20s/early 30s – Bob’s wife – Plays 50s housewife for others but is quick witted, observant and very smart.
Norma Baxter – 30s – Bob’s secretary. Efficient, classy dame. Witty, wise and level-headed when called for.
Jim Baxter –  late 20s/early 30s – Norma’s husband. High School teacher. Prankster type with a surplus of energy.
Theodore Sunderson – 40’s/50s. Bob’s boss – Bombastic and politic.
Kitty Sunderson – 40s – Teds wife. Very sweet, very genuine, but perhaps not the brightest bulb.
Barbara Grant – 40’s – Knows who she is and what she wants – no-nonsense, beautiful and brilliant.
