FLANAGAN'S WAKE CAST
After two nights of auditions for Seraphims first show of the season, the cast of Flanagans Wake has been announced! Congratulations to everyone in the cast, and thank you to everyone that came out to audition for the show.
Flanagan's wake is a comedy about a small fictional town in Ireland where the townspeople mourn the loss of their dear friend Flanagan. With heavy improv elements, the audience is included in retelling Flanagan's life story, and what made his such a remarkable member of his community.
David Azadi Scott has been involved with theater for most of his life, and has worked on every side of the stage and screen. He's had the pleasure to act with many of the local troupes and can often be found performing live comedy with the Scared Scriptless improv group. In his spare time he enjoys writing, photography, and most of all being a father.
Comedy: Flanagan's Wake is a comedy/improv stylized play and one of the longest-running shows in Chicago theater history. When will it end? According to Brian Ballybunion, Flanagan's best friend and drinkin' mate, "We'll keep waking himself until we get it right." Join the villagers of the beautiful fictional village of Grapplin, County Sligo, Ireland, as they tell tales, sing songs and mourn the passing of one of their own, Flanagan. You'll be transported to the Emerald Isle to grieve as only the Irish can. You can share tales of your own experiences and misadventures with dear old Flanagan or simply enjoy the stories and songs of the locals as they recall life with "himself." Once you have arrived in Grapplin, you'll pay your respects to glowering Mother Flanagan and to poor grieving fiancée, Fiona Finn. Listen to a eulogy written by County Sligo's best-known writer, Mickey Finn, and tip a pint with Brian Ballybunion, himself a weaver of tales. You can cross yourself with the blessings from St. Gregory's parish priest, Father Damon Fitzgerald, or cross your fingers that local pagan Kathleen Mooney doesn't cast a spell on you. Mayor Martin O'Doul will preside over the proceedings with an iron hand (and a parched throat).
