Coal Creek Theater of Louisville
announces auditions for
by John Patrick Shanley
directed by Dan Schock
The Story: Anthony and Rosemary are two introverted misfits straddling 40. Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, a state of affairs that—due to his painful shyness—suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him, watching the years slip away. With Anthony’s father threatening to disinherit him and a land feud simmering between their families, Rosemary has every reason to fear romantic catastrophe. But then, in this very Irish story with a surprising depth of poetic passion, these yearning, eccentric souls fight their way towards solid ground and some kind of happiness.

Aoife Muldoon – Female, 60’s – Rosemary's mother, in bad health. A sharp, straight-shooting old bird. Weathered, opinionated, and set in her ways.
Anthony Reilly – Male, 40’s – an intense dreamer, dutiful and quiet. His subdued manner masks a full, yearning heart. He is sensitive and guarded.
Rosemary Muldoon – Female, Late 30’s or early 40’s – a farmer’s daughter who’s a tough cookie and a bit of a tomboy, but with a romantic soul. Single-minded, willful, patient and optimistic.
