Beowulf Alley Theatre announces


For two new plays


Beowulf Alley Theatre will be holding auditions for Eugene O’Neill’s “new” play Exorcism and a new play by Jem Street, Hope, Monday, June 4th at 7:00 PM to 8:30PM at Beowulf Alley Theatre, 11 S. 6th Avenue, in downtown Tucson. Auditions will consist of readings from the scripts.





Two men (20’s)

Three men (30-60)



Two women (30-45)

One African-American woman (20’s)

One woman (20’s)

Two men (35-50’s)


Exorcism is a one-act play about a troubled young man and his difficult relationship with his family. It is something of a palimpsest for Long Days Journey Into Night, as the main character Ned is reminiscent to Jamie Tyrone. The play was performed by the Provincetown Players in 1920 and then quickly withdrawn. It is speculated that O’Neill was too uncomfortable with such an honest portrait of himself and his father. Recently rediscovered, this production will run Friday and Saturday, July 6th, 7th, 13th, 14th at 7:30PM and Sunday July 8th at 2:30PM.


Hope by Jem Street is a new play and part of her graces trilogy that includes Faith and Love. Street’s work meditates on American life in the first part of the new millennium with humor, candor and a sense of history. Hope is the story of Joe Chandler, a Tennessee businessman being courted to run for the U.S. House of Representatives. Chandler must look back over his life and determine if he has “been a good enough man to be a politician.” In flashback his history with romantic relationships, a stormy relationship with his racist father, and all that he has been must be seen through this ironic prism. This is a full-length play and the performance dates are Friday and Saturday July 20th, 21st, 27th, and 28th at 7:30 PM and Sunday July 22nd at 2:30 PM.
