Stage directions reader
During performances, actors will read from the scripts on music stands. It will be well rehearsed with strongly developed characters, but no memorization is required. There are 32 scenes with five specific locations....wonderful, complex characters....a beautiful love story.....a play perfect for Readers' Theater format.
Synopsis: Roy and Irma have been married for 25 years. They have two children. They live in America's heartland. They are respected members of their church and community. When Roy and Irma see their pastor for a “tune up” counseling session, Roy reveals that he is a woman trapped in a man's body and has reached a time and place he can no longer deny it. The story is about how Irma, the children, the parents, the church, the community, the work place and Roy, himself, handle this new reality.
Thank you and we look forward to you audition!
