Eastern Sierra News for July 18, 2024





Theater is back in the Eastern Sierra!

Auditions for Jane Martin’s play “Talking With…” will be held on Monday August 29th 6PM-8PM at The Forum Theater 141 N. Jackson St. in Lone Pine.

Eleven female roles are available from ages 16-70.  Talking With… is a 1982 play by Jane Martin, published by Samuel French Incorporated. The play is composed of eleven ten-minute monologues, each featuring a different woman who talks about her life. The play includes the pieces, “Fifteen Minutes,” “Scraps,” “Clear Glass Marbles,” “Audition,” “Rodeo,” “Twirler,” “Lamps,” “Handler,” “Dragons,” “French Fries,” and “Marks.”

It premiered at the  Manhattan Theatre Club in New York in 1982 and has been performed around the world.  The play deals with  the personal ordeals of each of  the female characters. Many of  them are  very touching; a few are  even intensely emotional. However, there is also the very comical. Even the funny ones, however, have an underlying depth to them that gives a sensitive insight into each of the characters involved

The ladies cover a wide spectrum of life and age from the fading rodeo star
in “Rodeo” to the young aspiring actress in “Audition”, there is much tenderness and diversity in the subject matter involved in the play.

“Talking With…” will be directed by The Forum Theater Manager, Martha Jo Walton.

Rehearsals begin September 12th, and that schedule will be announced after the play is cast. It will be flexible with 2-3 actresses rehearsing each session.

Performances are October 7th & 8th at The Forum Theater.
