    Anna is in the hospital having the latest of her frequent deathbed scenes, and this one looks like it may be the real deal. She makes a shocking confession to her grown children about an affair from her past that just might have resonance beyond the family. But how much of what she says is true? While her children try to separate fact from fiction, Anna fights for a legacy she can be proud of. With razor-sharp wit and extraordinary insight, Our Mother’s Brief Affair considers the sweeping, surprising impact of indiscretions both large and small.

    In suburban Massachusetts in the mid-1980’s, thirty-something-year-old Josephine Rosen has a dead-end job and still lives at home with her hypochondriac mother. She started college but never finished, and has settled into a life that doesn’t offer much hope for the future. But when a new friendship at work and a chance flirtation with an old classmate give her hope for the possibility of change, she dusts off the Jane Fonda tapes and begins to take tentative steps towards a new life. This is a play about the tragedy and joy of figuring out who you are and letting go of who you were supposed to be.

    Casting Requirements:

    • Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
    • A résumé and headshot are not required but are appreciated.
    • Please provide a list of all known conflicts between March 5 & May 5, 2019

    NOTE: This play takes place in a middle-class suburb of Boston. Dialect will be taught, so if cast you can expect to spend time working dialect at rehearsal and when learning lines. This is very important to the play. (You are most welcome to give it a shot at auditions!)
