The Darien Arts Center is having auditions for Sirens by Deborah Zoe Laufer which will be directed by Carin Zakes in their black box theater. Auditions will be held on January 7 and 8 at 7 to 9pm in the Visual Arts Studio at 2 Renshaw Road in Darien. Call backs, if required, will be held on January 9th, 2014 at 7pm. 

This delightful new play was a hit at the 2010 Humana Festival of New American plays as it explores the poignancy of a once passionate relationship that has lost its sizzle. When Sam fell in love with Rose he wrote her a song that has been covered by every recording artist and translated to every language. And for twenty-five years, Sam has been looking for the creative spark that this first flush of love had inspired in him – to no avail. And while on a cruise to celebrate the anniversary of their marriage, Sam hears the most sublime music ever heard, jumps overboard, and winds up with a Siren. And there on her island he must struggle with the terrors of middle age, the tortures of creative failure, and the desire to live in his past rather than face his uncertain future. And he must find a way to get home and win his wife back. You can find more information about the play at http://www.samuelfrench.com/p/2254/sirens
