Open Auditions Announced for a World Premiere

Diminished Capacity By Albi Gorn


Auditions for this world premiere by award-winning local playwright, Albi Gorn, Diminished Capacity reveals our limitations and how we navigate through them. Revolving around an interconnected group of people and a Federal narcotics case, Diminished Capacity is about understanding what holds us back, what makes us tick, and what keeps us going.


In Diminished Capacity, a criminal defense lawyer is assigned to represent a young man who is at best only marginally guilty and may well be innocent. Along the way we meet other lawyers, a court reporter, a judge, a college professor, another defendant in the case, a student of the professor who is also a waitress, and a psychologist, all of whom, like in a Dickens novel, seem to have connections to everyone else.


Auditions will be held at the John C. Hart Memorial Library, 1130 Main Street, Shrub Oak, NY 10588 on Monday and Wednesday, August 14 and 16 at 7:00 pm. Performances will run for 6 performances in early November at The United Methodist Church in Shrub Oak. For more information contact director Robin Joseph at 914-478-2281 or


If you cannot make either of the audition dates please call the director, Robin Anne Joseph, at 914 478-2281 and she will arrange another time with you, at an earlier date, when you can come in to read.
