Seeking three actors for delightful one-act, area premiere:
Ruth2–one classic story of love, loyalty and loneliness in a foreign land gets two totally different treatments. (“The Redemption of Ruth” by afO’s Lauren Nichols presents the biblical story of Naomi and her daughter-in-law in a creative blank-verse reader’s theater format. This 45-minute piece has already been cast.)
Stephen Baldwin’s award-winning “My Name is Ruth” updates the story to a Midwest department store in the 1950s. This 70-minute romantic comedy requires three actors:
one female, age 30+, to play Ruth
two males, also mid-30s or older–one will play multiple small character roles, the other will play Boaz.
Come and read from the script. Rehearsals will begin in late August. Call director Lauren Nichols at (260) 246-1989 with any questions.
