About the play:
Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. Middle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy housekeeper Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha.

Miss Evers Boys is a fictionalized account of the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male that took place in Macon County, Alabama. From 1932 to 1972, hundreds of poor black men suffering from “bad blood” were given mercury and arsenic, a treatment that worked if it didn’t kill the patient, until funding ran out. The diligent Nurse Evers is faced with a difficult decision: to tell the men that they are no longer being treated, or follow the lead of her superiors and the tenets of the nursing profession. David Felshuh's riveting drama explores still-relevant topics such as medical ethics, prejudice, misogyny, classism, black, white and the areas in between.
We are seeking a cast of 7 actors to bring this classic story to life. This production of Miss Evers Boys will feature the actors playing live 'found instruments' such as washboard, spoons, trashcans, vocal arrangements and harmonica. MUSICAL PERFORMERS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.
ADULT PERFORMERS OF ALL AGES ARE WELCOME!
