Equinox Theatre Company announces auditions for the world premiere of “One Death, Please?” by local playwright Christian Munck, directed by Patrick Brownson. Auditions will be held Saturday, Sept 24 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Callbacks will be Sunday, September 25 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Both Auditions and Callbacks will be at The Bug Theatre.

About the show: In keeping with their mission of presenting new works to the audiences of Denver, Equinox is thrilled to present this world premiere play by local playwright Christian Munck. “One Death, Please?” is about a young pop-star named Olive Warren who seems to have it all, however no amount of fame or stardom can make her truly happy. Warren decides enough is enough and sets out to take her own life with the help of an assisted suicide clinic run by Daniel and Erin Muscarelli. However, just like her Hollywood lifestyle, Warren soon finds out that nothing is truly as it seems. This smart new work is equal parts funny and captivating while shining a harsh spotlight on the brutality of the popular media.
