Freedlander’s fall production is already underway. The audition and callback process began in early September and performances will be held later this fall. 

This year’s production, “Far Away,” is a 2020 play written by Caryl Churchill, the author of “Top Girls” and “Cloud Nine.” 

The play is an exploration of fear. Focused on the experiences of a young girl, “Far Away” takes place in a frightening and chilling world where “everyone is at war, and not even the birds, or the trees, or the river below can be trusted.” 

Directed by Jimmy A. Noriega, this hour-long production is slated to open October 4th, 5th and 6th at Wooster’s Freedlander Theater. The Box Office opens Sept. 29th. Make sure you catch Churchill’s futuristic nightmare of a violent world. 

If “Far Away” isn’t your thing, but you still want to support Wooster’s Theatre and Dance Department, don’t forget to check out the I.S. Productions opening in early November. “If Eve Left…” written by r. tara turk, and directed by CoW’s own Jaz Nappier, will open at the Schoolroy Theater on November 5th and 6th. The Box Office opens Nov. 1st.
