FAIR LAWN, N.J. — The Old Library Theater is holding auditions for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams on Sept. 21 and 22 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Directed by Marilyn Schilkie, the play takes place in a plantation house, where a family celebrates the 65th birthday of Big Daddy. The mood is somber, despite the festivities, because a number of evils poison the gaiety: greed, sins of the past, and desperate, clawing hopes for the future spar with one another as the knowledge that Big Daddy is dying slowly makes the rounds.
Maggie, Big Daddy's daughter-in-law, wants to give him the news that she's finally become pregnant by Big Daddy's favorite son, Brick, but Brick won't cooperate in Maggie's plans and prefers to stay in a mild alcoholic haze the entire length of his visit.
Auditions will be held at the Fair Lawn Recreation Center, 10-10 20th St. in Fair Lawn. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
