The Black Box Theatre, 1623 5th Avenue, Moline, is holding auditions for Natural Shocks by Lauren Gunderson December 28 – 6:00-7:30 pm or by video submission. Show is directed by Roger Pavey Jr.

About the play:

“Angela is trapped in her basement, waiting out an approaching tornado. Though a self-proclaimed unreliable narrator, she begins to reflect on a lifetime of trauma, illuminating the truth behind her endangerment. Based on Hamlet’s famous “To be or not to be “soliloquy, NATURAL SHOCKS is a damning condemnation of violence, abuse, and firearms in America.”

– Dramatists Play Service

Performances: February 2-5, February 9-12

Rehearsal Period: Flexible; based on actors’ availability. Beginning early January.

Talent of varying ethnicities, sexual orientation, body types, age, religion, walks of life, trans women, and individuals of the LGBTQIA+ community are encouraged to audition.
