Wide Eyed Productions is holding auditions for
Dead Special Crabs by Dan Kitrosser
Directed by Kristin Skye Hoffmann

The play will be performed in November 2014 at TBG Theatre on 36th street in Manhattan.


Dead Special Crabs by Dan Kitrosser is a wacky, road-trip adventure that follows Loomer, his best friend June, Detective Horntub, Loomer’s Aunt Missy, and an unknown serial killer as they find misadventure after misadventure. While the play does get nuttier and nuttier, and darker and darker, the characters get deeper and deeper and eventually find themselves confronting new levels of their own lives and humanity.
