CASTING TWO PERFORMERS OF COLOR FOR PREMIERE PRODUCTION OF PLUTO (NO LONGER A PLAY) AT THE BRICK

Superhero Clubhouse will premiere the ninth in a series of Planet Plays at The Brick in the spring of 2017.
Auditions will take place December 12, 2016.

PLUTO is an allegory about extinction… or, it used to be, maybe. Three humans attempt to give a presentation about the remains of a play that no longer exists. The fragments seem to suggest the story of a unicorn, a hunter, and a wizard, all struggling to adapt to a rapidly changing world. Facing similar dilemmas, the three humans reenact their findings, searching for hope among the bones.
