In the post-apocalyptic wilderness of the former Northeast U.S, the seasons change in an
instant, language evolves into profane euphony, and the laws of gravity fail from time to time.
Enter vaudevillians Zetta Stone and Dog, cart in tow, trying to get to “where the sun come out
the sea”. Along the way, they encounter Vera, Jojo, Coke and Bud, fellow seekers also trying to
survive. At the end of the world, how do we heal from the past? How do we cope with the
uncertainty of the future? Award Winning Director Holly Twyford explores the landscape
of destruction, hope, and transformation in this provocative, quick-witted comedy.

What they are looking for:
Actors, singers, and movers alike interested in an experimental, comedic work featuring
vaudevillian performance, boundary breaking language, physical ferocity, and fun!

Preparation:
Come ready with a short-spoken piece, an acapella song, and a special skill! The short piece can
be a monologue, poem, short story, diary entry, original or found material, ideally 45 sec-1.5
min. The acapella song can be accompanied by a personal instrument (whatever that means to
you), ideally 40 sec. Memorization recommended but not required.
