Synopsis: Cindy and Karen, who are sisters, share a home. Even with their combined incomes, they can’t quite make ends meet. It is suggested that they rent a room to a boarder to make some extra dollars. An interesting and strange lady answers their ad and the sisters offer her the room. She has a few odd requests for her at-home, mysterious, business. Oh, and she has a cat.

Auditions will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, 9/15 and Thursday, 9/17 beginning at 7:30 pm. The director will ask auditionees to read part of the script for your character.
