Dove Star Productions, LLc.
Welcome to the audition of our newest dramatic play-“Who Is My Neighbor?” This play is an adaptation of the book written by the director and producer Monique R. Ransom titled: “Who Is Thy Neighbor?”
This is a dramatic and ground breaking play with a message about “who is my neighbor” centered upon the biblical story of the Good Samaritan used to display neighborly love. This parable mocks the “pious self-loftiness” of the Pharisees as they refuse to “become unclean” by helping a man who is hurt, a Jew like themselves.
However, the play will use the story of a married woman named Jasmine who answers the call of God on her life to become a Christian. In the process of learning the ways of Christianity, she also discovers the cold harsh reality concerning those who call themselves Christians, yet portray characteristics opposite of what Jesus expects us to show as love for one another.
This is a full length play. There will be several more auditions to come as well as callbacks, if necessary. This play is scheduled to premiere in March 2020. We are scouting several venues to actually host the play, however, we do have a location we are deeply considering.
