Rebekah Theatre Project is seeking strong Actors for their production of the multi-award winning play, The Shadow Box by Michael Cristofer.

The Shadow Box takes place over one day in three hospice cottages on the grounds of a large American hospital. The cottages are inhabited by terminally ill patients and their loved ones who care-take and support them. The play revolves around how each patient deals with their situation, with the relationship of their families, regrets, fond memories and outright joy at being together.
