Audition - The Flashlight Zone: Speculative Fiction at the Speed of Light!

Announcing auditions for The Flashlight Zone: Speculative Fiction at the Speed of Light!, written and directed by Michael Weingartner.  

The Flashlight Zone is an experiment in flash theater - twenty short science fiction plays performed in the span of one hour.
