Michele & Martin Futrell
After years of travelling abroad, Avery Sutton brings his girlfriend to his Connecticut home to meet his family. Things have changed. The whole house is on a tilt. The dog is feral. His grandmother, presumed dead, is alive and kicking. Come and meet his hilarious, eccentric and dysfunctional family to discover if you can, in fact, go home again.
This will be a first come first served audition. No need to book a time. You will be given excerpts from the play to read and you may also be asked to do a cold read of a short monologue.
