Cleveland Public Theatre announces Auditions for FUNNY, LIKE AN ABORTION 

By Rachel Bublitz 

Directed by Paige Conway 

 Looking to cast the following roles…  

  • Monroe: she/her, mid-twenties, any race. Makes bad jokes. Like, really bad. Can juggle quite well, actually. 
  • Jade: she/her, close in age to Monroe, any race. Has legitimate concerns and distress over how to actually help her friend.  

We are open to seeing both AEA and non-AEA actors for these auditions. 

 About The Play…  

Monroe is planning a surprise party for her bestie Jade complete with decorations, chocolate cupcakes, puns and 20 giftbags full of surprises.  However, the biggest surprise is that she’s planning to give herself a home-concocted abortion. Set in a future America where even saying the word “abortion” is a crime, this play is about loyalty, friendship, and the value of life. A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. Funny, Like An Abortion was originally developed with PlayGround’s 25th and 26th Festival of New Works with Jim Kleinmann as Artistic Director.
