Those interested in auditioning should be prepared to perform a two-minute poem at auditions. There will be cold readings from the script as well.

Performances: March 1 – 17, 2019

Performance location: Bowie Community Theatre at the Bowie Playhouse

The Women of Lockerbie takes place seven years after the 1988 disaster in which an American airliner was destroyed over Lockerbie, Scotland, apparently by a terrorist bomb. The Livingstons have come to Lockerbie for a memorial service that is being held for the families of the victims. They meet the women of Lockerbie who are determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love by washing and returning the clothes to the victims’ families. The Women of Lockerbie is a powerful and moving poetic drama—an affirmation about how the human spirit triumphs over evil.

by Ayad Akhtar

Disgraced, by Ayad Akhtar, is the taut drama of Amir Kapoor, an up and coming Muslim American lawyer who has rejected his religious background as overly rigid. Yet, at the insistence of his nephew and Islamic-inspired artist wife Emily, he chooses to attend the trial of an Imam who is charged with financially supporting the Hamas. At a dinner party that includes Amir’s coworker Jory, who is African American, and her husband, Isaac, Emily’s agent, who is Jewish, truths spill out that put Amir’s life in a new perspective. The show presents competing themes of assimilation versus exclusion, religious beliefs versus culture and tolerance versus prejudice.

Imagine that it’s 1950. The Korean War has started. McCarthyism, the practice of making accusations of subversion or treason without proper regard for evidence, is rampant in the U.S. government. The House Unamerican Activities Committee is destroying careers and ruining lives. Imagine also that you are gay (although that’s not what they called it then). How do you survive? Maybe you come up with some sort of . . . arrangement.
