actress 40s-ish still needed for Mysterious Skin!

Hi. We're a couple weeks into rehearsals and still trying to get our sympathetic "mom" whose son thinks he was abducted by aliens but she loves him anyway. This is a terrific play based on Scott Heim's novel, performing at the Backdoor Theater Aug 18-Sept 24, and there is a payment based on ticket sales. The role is a small one, but important and fun. Please let me know if you may be interested in this.
