The Everyman Repertory Theatre will hold auditions for its October production of “Talley’s Folly” by Lanford Wilson. Auditions will be held Saturday, July 30, from 3 to 5 p.m. on the third floor of the Camden Opera House, Elm Street/Route 1.

Auditioners may call 236-0173 and book a slot or just show up. Rehearsals will begin in August; and performances are scheduled for Oct. 8, 9, 15, 16, 22 and 23. It will be directed by David Greenham, former artistic director of the Monmouth Theater in Maine and current director of Everyman’s “Casablanca,” running through July at the Camden Opera House.

Winner of both the 1980 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award as best play of the season; and part of a cycle of plays begun with “Fifth of July,” “Talley's Folly” deals with the courtship of the young Sally Talley and her Jewish suitor, Matt Friedman. Sally’s age is between 20 and 35, while Matt will be played by an older actor. The playwright does not specify ages for the characters, and they have been played by actors between 20 and 55.

This two-hander will play two weekends at the Rockport Opera House; and then travel for a final weekend at the Holocaust and Human Rights Center in Augusta. For more information about the Everyman Repertory Theatre, including details about “Casablanca,” visit
