Auditions: ‘When We Are Married’ by J.B. Priestley at Chester Theatre Group

 

When we are married Master650x315-3

Open auditions for ‘When We Are Married’ by J.B. Priestley
Directed by Cindy Alexander

Set on a September evening around 1908, this timeless British comedy centers on three couples who gather to celebrate their joint silver wedding anniversaries. As the evening progresses one outrageous secret is revealed: the parson who married them wasn’t authorized to perform marriages, thus, they were never actually married and these uptight, distinguished couples have been “living in sin” for twenty-five years. When each couple samples a taste of single life once again, their relationships are vigorously and hilariously put to the test, and the elephant in the room can’t be ignored. Do they really want to be married after all?
