TheatreWorks is an award-winning, non-Equity theatre company located on 5 Brookside Avenue, just off Route 202 (next to the CVS), in New Milford, CT. Barry Champlain, Cleveland's controversial radio show host, is on the air doing what he does best: insulting the pathetic souls who call in the middle of the night to sound off. The most frightening thing? They love it. In fact, Barry's show is so popular it's about to go into national syndication, and his producer is afraid that Barry will say something that will offend the sponsors. This, of course, makes Barry even more outrageous. Disturbing, funny, moving, off-beat, and totally entrancing, TALK RADIO was adapted into a riveting film by director Oliver Stone and revived for Broadway audiences in 2007 - earning two Tony Award nominations.

Seeking: cast of 6 men, ages 18 to 60 and 3 women, ages 25-50.
