Casting “Making God Laugh,” a play. Project description: “A delightful, and at times poignant, comedy/drama. This is a story of life’s changes of direction, the role reversals of parents and children, the primacy of the reality of now versus the memories of the past and the predictions of the future, and the importance of family breaking bread together. The play begins in the 80’s and ends at the millennium-wonderful acting challenges as the characters change through three decades.”
