Auditions for Trigger Warning
by Jacques Lamarre
Zeitgeist Stage announces auditions for roles in their spring production 2019, Trigger Warning by Jacques Lamarre. Auditions are Monday & Tuesday, October 1 & 2 at the Plaza Black Box Theater at the Boston Center for the Arts..
Trigger Warning will look at how a mass shooting impacts one family - that of the shooter. Were there warning signs that were ignored? Could they have done anything to stop this senseless act? Can they face a community that once was home and now reviles them? Is there anything this family can offer a devastated nation other than thoughts and prayers?
Wednesday through Sunday, April 12 thru May 4, 2019 at the Plaza Black Box Theater at the Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont St, Boston.
Trigger Warning will be a World Premiere, as it is a new play commissioned by Zeitgeist Stage. Towards that end, there will be number of readings for an invited audience and/or the public. These readings will most likely take place in November/December and February/March. These readings will require some rehearsal time and availability for the readings themselves (To Be Scheduled).
