Production Description

Casting "Standing in Mattoon," a play. Project description: "A comedically soulful sojourn about a recently divorced bagel factory worker who believes she’s played out her life in Mattoon, Illinois, a reverend who’s losing his congregation to a nearby Mega Church and an enigmatic stranger. These desperate souls face off in a bizarre contest of endurance in hopes of changing their lives. Told through the lens of an ice cream vendor who once ran the town’s local paper, 'Standing in Mattoon' is a funny tale about sad people who want to change their funny, sad lives."
