Eventide Arts Theatre Company and director Mary Arnault will be holding auditions for “The Heiress” by “Ruth Goetz and Augustus Goetz, based on the novel “Washington Square” by Henry James.

This Tony Award-winning play centers on painfully shy Catherine and her austere father. When Catherine falls in love with a handsome suitor, Morris Townsend, her father threatens to disinherit her, convinced that the young man could only be interested in Catherine’s fortune.

Catherine suggests to Morris that they elope immediately, she cannot stand to be in her father’s house another night; but she also mentions the threat of disinheritance. Morris leaves to get his things, but does not return, and Catherine is crushed. Three days later Dr. Sloper realizes that he is mortally ill, and tries to reconcile with Catherine. She refuses.

Two years later Morris returns, and the play reaches its climax.
