Time: 10am – 6pm

Seniors Acting Lab is accepting actor submissions to audition for our upcoming production of MudPie, a new play written by Christopher Heatherington and directed by Sally Cacic.


After her husband is killed in a tragic hit and run accident, Ella Coulter’s journey through grief takes a turn for the unexpected when she becomes convinced that her sister Laura was somehow involved – and responsible – for her husband’s death. Suspecting a conspiracy and cover up, Ella refuses to believe the official police account of what happened and severs all ties with her only sibling. Suspicion spawns obsession as Ella’s search for answers becomes all-consuming – and for her own family, all ‘concerning’.

​When presumably-lost personal items from her dead husband mysteriously begin to turn up, Ella’s quest becomes an odyssey – beginning in her own backyard, and ending when long-kept, closely guarded family secrets are finally revealed.
