Audition notice - TERMINUS by Gabriel Jason Dean

South Camden Theatre Company
Post Date: Jan 12, 2022

The South Camden Theatre Company is seeking non-equity actors for its upcoming production of TERMINUS by Gabriel Jason Dean. Auditions will take place by appointment only on Saturday February 12th and Sunday February 13th beginning at 11 AM.

Terminus tells the story of Eller, a white matriarch, and her mixed-race grandson, Jaybo, who live together in a ramshackle house down by the railroad tracks in rural Georgia. Their unique love has seen them through, but when Eller’s mind begins to fade with dementia, her violent past in the segregated South haunts her from the very walls of the old family home. As she descends terrifyingly closer toward a horrifying truth, Jaybo’s capacity to love his grandmother is put to the test. This award-winning drama metaphorically asks, how are white Americans haunted by and continually complicit in the sustained trauma against black Americans?
