In June, the Arkansas Repertory Theatre will close out its 40th season with the world premiere of Scooter Pietsch’s WINDFALL.
The playwright, director and producer of the play are in Little Rock this weekend to start the audition process for that production.
The play will be directed by Tony winner Jason Alexander and produced by John Yonover. It will run from June 8 to June 26.
WINDFALL is set in a small data processing business in Ohio. It examines the impact that winning the lottery might have on four co-workers out to escape from working for a maniacal boss. A dark comedy, it combines wordplay and physical action as it showcases the workers in their dreary workplace.
Following auditions in Little Rock, Pietsch, Alexander, Yonover will travel with Rep Producing Artistic Director Bob Hupp to New York City for more auditions. Rehearsals will begin in Little Rock in May.
