Auditions for "Wanda's Visit," by Christopher Durang; "Long Ago and Far Away," by David Ives; and "Mere Mortals," by David Ives, will take place Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 27 and 28, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Darien Library.

Callbacks, if necessary, will be Thursday, Sept. 4. An evening and weekend rehearsal schedule will begin in September and run through the middle of November.

Actors should bring a headshot if available, resume and contact information, including cellphone number. Participants will be given audition sides to perform; some are available to borrow at the Welcome Desk to prepare in advance.

Performances are Actors' Equity Association approved.

The roles to be filled are male and female, ages 20 to 50; other roles are 50 and older.

"Wanda's Visit" is the story of Jim and Marsha, who have been married for 13 years and are feeling a little bored and unhappy. Wanda, Jim's old girlfriend, shows up for a visit.

In "Long Ago and Far Away," a married yuppie couple, about to move out of their apartment, argue about the nature of reality and become caught up in a bizarre scenario.

"Mere Mortals" features construction workers who are on the 50th floor of a building having lunch on a beam. They reveal strange, long-held secrets over lunch.

The performances of Weekend One Acts will take place in the Louise Parker Berry Community Room at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23.
