Announcing auditions for Paradox Theatre Works' First Annual New Works Festival "COCKTAILS AND MONOLOGUES". This is a One Night Only show of monologues, cocktails and classical piano music presented at The Community House at 620 Lincoln Avenue in Winnetka, a short walk from the Metra North line.

Seeking non-AEA actors of all backgrounds to perform selected New Works and World Premiere monologues from playwrights around the world.
