Fresh Hell

Fire Exit Theatre is seeking actors for its March production of Fresh Hell, written by Conni Massing and directed by Jeany Van Meltebeke Snider.


An unlikely encounter between Joan of Arc and American writer Dorothy Parker—one a renowned warrior saint, the other a suicidal brilliant writer.

Grappling with their own mortality, these two wrangle about the nature of faith, calling, and the meaning of life, proving themselves unlikely angels in the purgatory of doubt.

We Will Be Auditioning For The Following Roles

  • Joan: A young, ambitious French woman with a zeal for God. Sensitive to truth, assertive, smart and courageous. Often speaks French.
  • Dorothy: A cynical, middle-aged 20th century writer. Skeptical, witty, sardonic and prone to
    alcohol and despair.

We are proposing a condensed rehearsal schedule between February 13 and March 4, 2021.

Tech Rehearsals: March 5 – 8, 2022
Six Performances: March 9 – 13, 2022
