Acacia Looking For A Woman Called Truth
Acacia Holding Auditions for Bio Play About Sojourner Truth
Acacia TheatreÂ continues its Sandra Fenichel Asherâ€™s 1993 two-act drama about the life of influential abolitionist Sojourner Truth. Though its difficult to imagine any staged drama living up to the legend of a towering figure in the history of civil rights, any production that pays homage to her is worth examining. A history has a way of forgetting about the accomplishments of a great many people. . .
And so Acacia is looking for someone to play a onetime slave who spoke passionately about the equality of everyone . . . someone who survived some seemingly insurmountable challenges to fight for basic human rights that shouldâ€™ve been common sense in the first place. Acacia will be hosting auditions for itâ€™s May production of A Woman Called Truth.
Auditions for the production will take place on Sunday, November 14th between 4 and 6pm. The director is Lori Woodall Schaufler. Rehearsals will consist of reading from the script. Acacia requests a 2-minute prepared monologue, but itâ€™s not absolutely required. Auditions will be held by appointment only at the Church in the City on 2648 N. Hackett.
