The West Side Show Room announces casting for THE CHALK BOY

The West Side Show Room is casting The Chalk Boy, by Joshua Conkel.

SYNOPSIS

Beneath its boring facade there is more going on in the tiny town of Clear Creek than the opening of the new Taco Bell.  Four of the town's local girls are here to take you on a tour of their funny, yet brutal reality.  They struggle with faith, friendship, sex, the occult, algebra, and the disappearance of... the Chalk boy.  The Chalk Boy  is a deathly black comedy that punches as hard as your high school bully.

"If the satire is at times wickedly funny, Conkel makes his teenage girls, and the pressures they have to cope with, real enough that we want to take them seriously."

- San Francisco Gate
