AUDITIONS for OLEANNA Sunday 27 March

Email johnmarwick@xtra.co.nz for an audition time

Butterfly Creek Theatre Troupe’s winter production will be Oleanna, a modern American classic written by David Mamet.  The play is probably the most controversial work by one of the world’s a great living dramatists.  It deals with political correctness, power, and abuse – issues that are still very real and relevant nearly 20 years after its first production.  Since that time it has polarised and troubled audiences.  This is a play that will stick in your mind for a long time – adult theatre of the first order.

This is a wonderful opportunity for two good actors to come to grips with two very well-written complex characters in a fascinating situation.
