(contact us if interested but unable to make the audition date)
prepare 2 monologues (1-2 minute dramatic, 1-2 minute comedic)
Ahmed (any age): a Pakistani immigrant unjustly being held on suspicion of terrorist ties. An engineer whose faith is in science, not God, he recounts the life he has lost: growing up in Pakistan, marrying his wife, arguing with his religious brother. Fearing for his sanity in solitary confinement, he turns to God in spite of his misgivings.
The Initiated One (over 30): second-in-command of the Loreleii Foundation, an Ayn Randian organization that purports to offer enlightenment to members. Charismatic and righteous, he is forced to show a more vulnerable side as he turns personal betrayal into a bid for absolute power.
Alex Dobson (20’s): An overly-militaristic art museum security guard. Young and full of humour on the outside, deeply jaded inside. As he tries to make a connection with an attractive young patron, memories of his time in Baghdad push him over the edge into a deeply myopic vision of human nature.
The Author (any age): She wanted to be a dancer, a poet, an opera singer, a writer. Eventually she wrote a show. *Dancers/movement artists with strong acting ability encouraged to audition.*
Rehearsals will start the week after auditions and run through October. Actors will receive a $200 stipend.
