Saturday, June 24         10:00 AM

The Weekend Theater announces auditions for Little Brother, directed by Ryan Whitfield and Jason Green, June 24 at 10:00 am or June 25 at 6:00 pm at the Weekend Theater, 7th and Chester, Little Rock. You need to attend only one audition time.

Adapted from the Campbell and Prometheus award winning novel by Cory Doctorow, the play tells the story of San Francisco teenagers who, while skipping school and playing an alternate reality game, end up in the middle of a terrorist attack and on the wrong side of the Department of Homeland Security. This play asks “What is the right thing to do when authorities become oppressors?”

The play contains some mild adult language and deals with serious and adult topics.  If it were a film, it would probably be PG-13.

Cory Doctorow releases most of his fiction under a Creative Commons license.  There are some changes from the  novel to the play, but if you want to find out more about the story you can legally download the ebook of Little Brother the novel at no cost from :
