Seeking Latinx and white actors for moving and funny drama A Good Farmer at Burien Actors Theatre
Burien Actors Theatre (BAT) is seeking Latinx and white actors to play characters aged 30s through 50s in a drama laced with humor written by Sharyn Rothstein.
Synopsis: A Good Farmer is the story of two women – Bonnie, a farm owner, and Carla, her unlikely best friend, an undocumented Mexican immigrant – fighting to survive in a small New York town divided by America’s immigration battle. Rothstein brings us the very human story behind some of today’s contentious political issues in a play about love, friendship and finding the power to face what separates us. (Act 2 takes place seven years before Acts 1 and 3.)
Performances are at BAT in Burien from April 24 through May 17, 2020. Shows are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.
