THE STORY: Four literary heroines of the nineteenth century set conventionalism ablaze when they turn down marriage proposals from their equally famous gentlemen callers. What results is a confluence of love, anger, grief, and bloodshed, as the ensemble struggles to reconcile romantic ideologies of the past with their modern ideas of courtship. Everything you’ve learned about love from the pages of Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, and Little Women is turned upside down in this grand theatrical battle royale.

NOTE ON CASTING: This play will be cast flexibly with regards to gender and character. Please indicate on the form if there are characters or representations that you do not want to be considered for in casting. There will be perusal copies available in the lobby of the Yulman theater beginning March 4th for you to read prior to auditions.
