DATE/TIME/LOCATION:

DESCRIPTION:

 

When four lost New Englanders who enroll in Marty’s six-week-long community-center drama class begin to experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, the antic sadness of a motley quintet.

 

ROLES:

LAUREN (Female – Teenager): A loner. Definitely the outsider in the group – prefers being apart from the group, yet with a deep inner curiosity. Rough around the edges, but wants to succeed. Not aloof, just doesn’t know how to connect. Dreams of being an actor. Deep heart. Can be any ethnicity.

 

MARTY (Female – Late 40s-Early 60s): The teacher of the class. A bit of an earth mother quality, she believes in the power of vulnerability and connection that this work can bring. A natural leader, super comfortable in her skin. Unconventional. Has secrets. Married to James, and in a rocky patch.

 

JAMES (Male – Mid 50s-Late 60s): Outdoorsy, a previous Berkeley hippie now living in Vermont. Married to Marty, they are in a rocky patch which is making it harder for him to be vulnerable in the class, though he wants to participate. An introvert and people pleaser, has a rich imagination he is not used to sharing. Think Lands End.

 

SCHULTZ (Male – Mid 30s-Late 40s):
Recently divorced, puppy-dog sweet, and painfully needy. He exudes loneliness, lifelong hurt and resentment toward those men who have all the luck with women. Schulz is an endearing and slightly bumbling, and a would-be artistic furniture maker. He is recently on his own after a painful divorce, searching for something more not only in his activities, but in another woman.

 

THERESA (Female – Early 30s-Late30s):
Voluptuous, conflicted, flirtatious, warm and buoyant, and a former actress who has just moved to this small Vermont town, fleeing New York and a toxic relationship. Through Theresa’s uncertainty and anger over past hurts, we see how the acting exercises do, indeed, break down barriers

 

PREPARATION:

Please prepare one 1-minute, contemporary monologue in the style of the show. Callbacks will be held if necessary. Please bring a headshot and resume to your audition.
