“The Audition”, an LAU (lebanese American University) student theater production, of original text by Kenneth Robbins, directed by Bob Hamandi and Karim Kassem. A Mono drama performed by Sara Boutine.

The poster was inspired by the roles Amy take throughout this play, letting her imagination lead her and the audience on to various experiences.
