Auditions for "God of Carnage"

Silver Spring Stage announces auditions for their 2014-2015 season opening show, God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza.

Director Adam R. Adkins is looking to cast 4 actors who are willing to explore these themes with him in a healthy mix of dark and light. The ages of the parents are not set in stone, though they should look to be old enough to have a ten year old son (late 20’s-late 30’s preferably). The piece is very much an ensemble work, so most important is finding a cast that can play off of each other well. Also, please keep in mind that while this is a dark show, it is also a funny one. So don’t be afraid to find the humor where it is least expected.

‘Good People’ at Silver Spring Stage

Silver Spring Stage closes their 46th season with a riveting production of David Lindsay-Abaire’s Good People. This captivating dramadey about life struggles from rock bottom is both humorous and heartwarming; the perfect combination of reality and optimism blended into a brilliantly acted evening of theatre. Directed by Michael Kharfen, it’s an emotionally engaging opportunity to view life from many angles, including the less fortunate.

Silver Spring Stage bringing “Good People” to the stage

For Michael Kharfen, directing a play set in Boston is bringing out his roots — and his Boston accent.

“I grew up in the Boston area, so the characters, the setting, are very familiar to me,” Kharfen said.
