--- Casting Call, September 2021 ---
Open auditions will be held to form a community theatre cast for Truth War. The world premier of this award-winning drama by Kansas playwright Roy Stucky will be directed by the author.
Auditions will be held in the historic 1936 Blue Shoes Theatre (formerly Pretty Prairie Civic Theatre).
Auditions will be cold-read. Bring no audition material. Out of respect for your valuable time, auditions will be filmed. Your actual reading should take perhaps ten minutes. There is no singing in Truth War.

Truth War has 27 characters in the cast. All these roles (14 male, 13 female) are named speaking characters whose line count ranges from 197 lines to 3. Though the depicted ages of the characters span from 18 to 60, great latitude in the actual age of actors will be exercised.
Truth War - Abstract - Allen examines the fatal history of Espada's civil war, which was fought over the nature of Truth. The conflict is seen through a deceased historian's collected material. As Allen reads that material, characters from the nearly forgotten tragedy come onstage to enact their story.
