The Sherman Players will be holding auditions for
Written and directed by Dean Alexander
Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd April2023
At the Sherman Playhouse from 7-9.30 pm
Gary has his heart set on asking Mary Ann out on a date. The problem is, he experiences a full-blown panic attack any time he gets near her.
PERSONALITY CONFLICTS takes us inside Gary’s subconscious mind, as he tries to sort through his personal issues to uncover the key to his past that will ultimately allow him to move forward with his interpersonal life. Turmoil, both in Gary’s head and in his physical reality, ensues as the different aspects of Gary’s personality engage with one another.
Subsequently, this leads him to seek help from a therapist, who assists him in deciphering the messages that his subconscious mind is sending him. This allows Gary to discover something about himself that he had long since forgotten and leads him to question whether he would have simply been better off leaving well enough alone in the first place.
PERSONALITY CONFLICTS is an original play by Dean Alexander, which will be presented over the first two weekends in June as part of our SPECIAL PRESENTATIONS program.
The show runs for 6 performances June 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 9th, 10th, 11th 2023.
