Auditions for Last Train to Nibroc

Raleigh is headed to New York to be a writer, but love blooms and complications abound when he follows his heart – and May – to Kentucky instead. “You could easily enjoy another few hours of this.” —NY Times The cast calls for one male and one female who can play characters from 20 – 30 years old.
