Gallery Theater of West Chicago will hold auditions for Grace and Glorie by Tom Ziegler, directed by Gail Cannata.
Estelle Parsons and Lucie Arnaz starred on Broadway in this charmer set in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Grace, a feisty 90 year-old cancer patient, has checked herself out of the hospital and returned to her beloved homestead cottage to die alone. Her volunteer hospice worker, Glorie, is a Harvard MBA recently transplanted to this rural backwater from New York. Glorie is tense, unhappy and guilt-ridden, her only child having been killed in an auto accident when she was driving. As she attempts to care for and comfort the cantankerous Grace, the sophisticated Glorie gains new perspectives on values and life’s highs and lows.
Auditions will be held Sunday, August 6, 2017 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. and Monday, August 7, 2017 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
The play runs September 22, 23, 24 and 29, 30, Oct 1, 2017
