Auditions for the first show of 2018:
Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun
by Norm Foster
COMEDY / DRAMA
Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun is an emotionally-charged play that explores the relationship between a disabled man, Robert and a young pregnant woman, Holly. The play, like real life, is a constant tug-of-war between humor and pathos, selfishness and selflessness, surviving and thriving. Claire Castle is utterly devoted to her 35-year-old son Robert who suffered a severe brain injury as a child that stunted his emotional and mental growth to that of a 7-year-old. As his sole caregiver, Claire worries who will look after Robert when she is gone.
Nearby, a young woman named Holly Fitch struggles with her own obligations after learning that she is going to be a single mother. When Robert and Holly have a chance meeting at the local bus stop, a friendship is forged that changes all their lives.
“Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun” is a heartwarming play about hope and perseverance amidst adversity. Foster has layered the play with tiers of meaning, deriving the title of the play from a framed needlepoint that hung on Robert’s bedroom wall when he was a kid: “Before this glorious life is done, I shall kiss the moon and kiss the sun.”
