Auditions for Brownstone




The Gallery Theater of West Chicago will hold auditions for Brownstone by Catherine Butterfield, directed by Gail Cannata.


Three points of time converge in a New York brownstone, spanning eighty years and encompassing the lives of three pairs of people. There are newlyweds Stephen and Davia who long to move to Paris, aspiring actresses Maureen and Deena who struggle to get their big break; and engaged Jessica and Jason who find their relationship complicated by an unexpected pregnancy. With nothing but the roof above their head in common, all these characters share in New York experiences of compromising ambition, falling in love, and making memories.
