"Stella and Lou" — which will be performed at 7 p.m. on April 2 — is about two kindred spirits seeking solace as they navigate changing times and past relationships in a bar on a quiet night. Both characters are in their 50s/60s.

Crafted from interviews between the original cast and their parents, "You Better Sit Down " is a, by turns, funny and dramatic account of the parents' marriages and their subsequent divorces.

Needed are two men and two women in their 30s. The reading is scheduled for 7 p.m. on May 7.
