Shoulda Coulda Woulda is an interactive play about five community theatre volunteers holding auditions for an upcoming production. The audience becomes the group gathered to audition for the play-within-the-play. Surrounding the two scenes in which audience members audition by reading scenes from the play-within-the-play, guided by the production crew, we get a peek into some of the background drama behind the auditions. We also find out that two of the crew members have recently found themselves in a budding romance after years of shared friendship.
