Last Sunday evening was the first of two audition for a production of a play I wrote called Ham Buns and Potato Salad. As I am not the Director but the writer, I was allowed into auditions but was not responsible for them. So, I took my camera along to record the event. I am always struck by the audition process. Two people on a bare, black stage framed in a blaze red from the grand drape which hangs about the proscenium. It can be intimidating for the actors, and I always applaud every person who has the courage to put themselves up on that stage. How many things do we not experience in life simply because we lack the courage to put ourselves out there, endure the discomfort, risk the failure, and simply have the courage to try.
