In New York City, a few years after 9/11, after Abu Ghraib, four young artist friends ask themselves how far they will go to do something that matters.  Can they ever go back to September 10th, find love, or change the world?  Will they summon  a golem, a monster, to save them or will the golem have a mind of its own?

Please either prepare a contemporary monologue or come prepared to read sides from the script. A selection of sides will be provided at the audition to review and perform for the Director.
