AUDITION ANNOUNCEMENT

MAY 39th takes a voyeuristic ride through the morning after a first date: Sam gives Louisa everything she wants, and a few things she hadn't bargained for. In MAY 40th, Jim takes creative steps to heal Roya's blindness. 1,000 years from now, dating in the city will still blow chunks. And playing doctor will be way more creepy.

11:11 Productions announces auditions for the 2009 Capital Fringe production of MAY 39th/40th by Callie Kimball, directed by Christy Denny. MAY 39th ("the play with the orange") was a sold-out hit at the 2006 Capital Fringe Festival. The play has been rebuilt for Fringe'09, where it will be produced alongside Kimball's follow-up play, MAY 40th.
