Audition Notice: Myth of the Ostrich

Dundas Little Theatre presents Myth of the Ostrich by Matt Murray
Production Dates: 20 January – 5 February 2023

Director: Mary Rose

Play Synopsis:

Myth of the Ostrich is a delightful comedy.
“After Pam finds a letter that she deems inappropriate from her teenage son to his mystery girlfriend, she arrives unannounced at the other mother’s (Holly’s) house to discuss matters. From a small town and new to the big city, Pam also sees the letter as an excuse to get out of the house and meet new people. Holly, a severely blocked self-help writer, naturally welcomes the distraction with open arms. What starts as a pleasant visit, quickly becomes a complicated, bizarre, and hilarious roller-coaster ride of misunderstandings …”
