CHURCH & STATE By Jason Odell Williams 
Directed by Suzanne Dunn

Three days before his bid for reelection, in the wake of a school shooting in his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, a Republican U.S. senator makes an off-the-cuff comment to a blogger that gets leaked on “the Twitter,” calling into question the senator’s stance on guns and God. As his devoutly Christian wife and liberal Jewish campaign manager try to contain the damage, this look at how religion influences politics and how politics has become a religion is simultaneously funny and heartbreaking.

Audition Dates: Monday and Tuesday, August 13th and 14th, beginning at 7 pm at the Lake Worth Playhouse.

No appointment necessary.

Actors are asked to bring one headshot and resume.

Call backs, if needed, will take place on Thursday, August 16th.
