Mourning Dove, an award-winning radio play by Emil Sher now being mounted as a stage production, is seeking special performers to audition for a major role. The character, Keith, is a 20-30 year old man with a mild developmental handicap. Director Matthew Byron Cassi’s younger brother has Down syndrome, and he says “I’ve been involved with the handicapped community my whole life, so I would love to give an opportunity to a handicapped actor who might not normally have too many roles to audition for.” Cassi invites those with mental development issues, including Down syndrome and autism, to try out for this performance. No experience necessary. The auditions will be held at San Pedro Playhouse on April 13 and 14 at 7p.m. If you have any questions, please contact Matthew Cassi at
