Actor Needed for FAITH at Irish American Theatre Company

iatc_irish-theatre-festival-logoThe Irish American Theatre Company, needs your help! Our show is called FAITH, it’s a new play by Irish playwright, Paul Meade. We held the national premiere of the play in January as part of the First Irish Theatre Festival. I have had an actor drop out and I am in desperate need of a replacement.

The play is about a middle aged man who is dealing with a lot of middle aged issues- he’s lost his job, he’s trying to run the household, he feels he has no control over his life, and on top of all of that, he’s battling depression. He meets a man who offers him a new job and outlook on life. The play follows the character’s (Michael) journey through his highs and lows. His battles with anxiety, depression, medication, and he gets caught between the two most important people in his life- his wife and his friend. Both want what’s best for him, but they forget to ask the most important person of all – Michael.

The play will run two shows in Cincinnati, May 18 and 19. Then we will take the show to the Acting Irish International Theatre Festival in Calgary, Canada. The admission to the festival, play tickets, and rooms (if staying with the other actors) are paid for. You will need to supply your own way to Canada. Calgary is about a 19hr drive from Cincy or a plane ticket.

Let me know if you are interested in this fantastic role. You can reach the director, Michelle Crowley, by my cell 859-750-6773.
