Director Toby Wilson will be casting three roles for a series of comedic one-act plays by Rich Orloff. Orloff, who wrote the well-received Eventide production of “Radio Ridiculous”, has fashioned a series of one acts spoofs including the following:
“Oedi”: The King of Thebes hand-picked committee has discovered who was responsible for the death of his predecessor. Unfortunately, they come bearing information the King does not want to hear.
“The News from St. Petersburg”: In this Chekhovian spoof, two married, land owning aristocrats receive disquieting news of revolution in distant St. Petersburg. They try to verify this with their servants, only to find out the revolution has already reached their home.
“The Whole Shebang”: This whimsical comedy asks the question; what if our entire reality was merely the result of a rather middling graduate student’s thesis project taking place in another dimension?
The roles available include:
Actor One: (40-70 years old) Creon in “Oedi,” Fyodor the land owner in “The News from St. Petersburg,” Professor A, in “The Whole Shebang.”
Actor Two: (20 to late 30s) Oedipus in “Oedi,” Sasha the manservant in “The News from St. Petersburg,” The Student in “The Whole Shebang.”
Actress One: (30-45 years old) The Town Cryer in “Oedi,” Sofia the cook in “The News from St. Petersburg,” Edna in “The Whole Shebang.”
Auditions will take place a on Monday, August 23, at 5:30 pm at the Dennis Union Church. A pdf perusal copy is available on request by emailing Toby Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
