We will hold auditions for The Lyons by Nicky Silver.
Production dates are March 3 - 19 (3 weekends).
Ben Lyons is in a hospital where he is dying from cancer. His family gathers around him. They are his wife, Rita, and grown children, Curtis Lyons and Lisa Lyons. Also present is his nurse. Ben is no longer constrained by manners and says whatever he wishes, including expletives. Rita, trapped in a 40-year loveless marriage, now thinks of the future without Ben and plans to re-decorate. Lisa is an alcoholic, who has left an abusive marriage; Curtis, homosexual, has had little to do with his father, who is homophobic. In a getaway from the hospital, Curtis looks at an apartment with the help of an actor moonlighting as a real estate agent.
The play is simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious.
We will be casting actors for this comedy, 3 men:
Ben Lyons - late 70's, a dying man; an angry, emotionally remote man; riddled with cancer and expected to expire at any moment; although he is at the end of his life, he is not without energy.
Curtis Lyons - 30's, their son; a gay man whose relationship with the unseen Peter appears to be the only happy bond in the family, but we later learn it's an elaborate sham.
Brian - 27-35, an actor who sells real estate on the side; a very attractive real estate broker
