Offprompt informs that CADA Studio Productions is looking for actors to star in a new work by local playwright Elizabeth Avery Scott.
SYNOPSIS OF LIES, LOVE AND HITLER
Dr Paul Langley, age 39, is slightly mad. It’s not that he doesn’t have a good brain – like most academics, he has a very good brain – it’s just that he thinks he’s a little out of whack… mainly because he keeps seeing visions of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the dead man whose life and work he’s been studying for years.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, 39, was executed by the Nazis in 1945 for his role in a plot to kill Hitler. Langley is baffled how Bonhoeffer – a theologian like himself – could make the ideological leap from pacifism to tyrannicide in one fell swoop.
Langley finds himself in trouble when he falls for one of his students, Hannah Summers. Things become complicated when it’s discovered Hannah has a secret which threatens to destroy them both. Bonhoeffer walks Langley through his inner conflict, and Langley learns why, in morally ambiguous circumstances, it’s sometimes necessary to risk everything for a better future.
The audition is Thursday 29 July at the Street Theatre.
It’s something to look forward to when it hits the boards in November.
