Here is a look at upcoming auditions.

Casting calls include auditions for Spotlight Theater’s “Still” in New Lenox.

SPOTLIGHT THEATER: Auditions for the world-premiere play “Still,” a drama by award-winning British playwright Graham Farrow, will be conducted by appointment from 6:30-10 p.m. Nov. 26-27 at Spotlight Studio, 22032 Howell Drive, New Lenox.

He is the author of “Rattlesnakes,” which is in development as a film for Piper Films of London; the play “Talk About the Passion” and the novel “Speak No Evil” (Vantage Press), which was nominated for the Commonwealth Writer’s Prize.

Set in a pub in the north of England, this intriguing tale involves a group of four friends and Buddha.

Davie Morrisson, waiting out the birth of his first child by his current girlfriend, decides to spend the time at his friend Neil Irwin pub.

As he waits, Davie becomes intrigued by a statue of Buddha left on the counter.

Neil has no idea whom it belongs to and the idol sparks a bit of debate between the two about society and religious tolerance.

As the night wears on, one after the other, Neil and Davie’s friends Stuie Warner and Tommy Norton arrive, and with each arrival the debate begins anew.

But soon the heated conversation turns to other topics and this close-knit group of friends finds their friendship tested by the revelation of secrets well-hidden until this night.

All the while the statue of Buddha makes its presence felt as the men wonder, “Is it a good luck charm, bringing them closer together or a malevolent presence driving them apart?”

Four men (age range: 26-49) are sought. Actors of any race and ethnicity are encouraged to apply. Experience with English accents especially Northern English accents (Teesside specifically) is a plus.

Rehearsals (three per week) and performances will be at the troupe’s theater in New Lenox. The rehearsal schedule will be announced after auditions.

The performance dates will be Jan. 18–20 and 25–27 with the possibility of an extension.

The show will be directed by Jeff Gamlin, and actors will be paid a stipend.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. No prepared monologues are required.
