MARY DOESN'T WEAR RED LIPSTICK Audition Sign Up
By Cameron Sheppard | Directed by Luca Calabro
Mary Doesn’t Wear Red Lipstick, lead by Cameron Sheppard, is a continuation of the staged reading of Hail Francis, performed in fall of the 2019-2020 school year. Hail Francis, a story about faith, love, and judgment follows a brave young woman’s journey to understanding herself in a Catholic all Girls High School. Having continued her work since the first reading, with this staging Cameron will further the production, including staging, costumes, and lighting and sound design. This level of production will help all involved to better understand the process any original script may take when coming to the stage, and will allow continued work on the script itself.
This show deals with themes of abortion, self-induced abortion, and conversion therapy.
