STRAY CAT ANNOUNCES AUDITIONS FOR 
A WORLD PREMIERE
ANYTHING YOU HEAR AND ONLY HALF OF WHAT YOU SEE
by Ron Hunting
directed by Louis Farber

WHEN
Sunday, October 2nd, 12pm-4pm (yes, that's this COMING sunday!)
Callbacks likely Tuesday, October 4th at 6pm

WHERE
Childsplay Campus of Imagination and Wonder
900 S. Mitchell Dr. Tempe, Arizona 85281

ROLES AVAILABLE
6 M, 1 F

PHIL: Male, age 25-40, a hired gun somehow associated to a mysterious organization. A blunt instrument who specializes in “wet work”, fear and intimidation. Also, he’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
STEVE: Male, age 25-40, a lieutenant in the mysterious organization. Higher up on the totem pole than PHIL and more of a thinker. A man unafraid to do what is necessary, but also considerate of the circumstances and consequences associated with his particular line of work.
GEORGE: Male, age 35-60, a mailman who saw something he shouldn’t have. A kind man and a true friend who finds himself in a situation that is way over his head.
STAN: Male, age 35-60, a mailman and a citizen of this country and fully aware he’s entitled to certain unalienable rights as a Federal employee. The kind of guy to unnecessarily mansplain issues in a tense situation out of a misguided sense of self preservation.
TOM: Male, age 35-60, a mailman with a quick wit and acerbic tongue. A man who speaks his mind and doesn’t sugar coat things, which is refreshing and honest, but not always helpful.
JERRY: Male, age 35-45, an anxious accountant with the know-how and skill-set to do things like set up a Swiss bank account. He’s intelligent, rational and lives with his Jewish mother.
JACKIE: Female, age 20-40, the right hand of the leader of the mysterious organization. She is uncompromising, confident and wields authority with austerity.

ABOUT THE SHOW:
ANYTHING YOU HEAR AND ONLY HALF OF WHAT YOU SEE
by Ron Hunting
directed by Louis Farber
Performing at Tempe Center for the Arts
November 25 – December 10, 2016

An exciting new pitch-black comedy.
Recently filmed as a local feature titled POSTMARKED, and written by Valley playwright Ron Hunting; Stray Cat is thrilled to mount the World Premiere production of the original play - a comically dark, taut new thriller. While making his appointed rounds, mailman George Ruth witnesses a murder. He thinks it’s a drug deal gone bad. Boy is he ever wrong. Think the unpredictability of Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs) meets the dark undercurrents of Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman) meets the edgy narrative style of David Mamet (American Buffalo) and you have some idea of what to expect from this hilarious, trenchant new work.
