Auditions are a general open call without appointments or prepared readings- we will be doing cold readings from the script, everyone will be read at least twice, and an opportunity to read for specific things they haven’t read for but are interested in reading for is generally provided depending on the number of people.
One performance of the five performances is designated as an “actor’s benefit night” with door proceeds in excess of hall rental and royalty split equally between members of the cast and crew.
Ernest: A birdlike, bumbling man of about 60. Husband of Delia, father of Trevor.
Delia: A well preserved, talkative woman of about 60. Wife of Ernest, mother of Trevor.
Trevor: A self-obsessed, not too intelligent man who drives other men crazy but who women can find charming and funny. He can be in his mid to late 20′s – 30′s. Husband to Susannah, son of Ernest and Delia, ex-boyfriend of Jan.
Susannah: Also in her 20′s or 30′s, Susannah is Trevor’s (also self-obsessed) wife. She is slightly unbalanced and volatile.
Jan: Wife to Nick, ex-girlfriend of Trevor. Is happy with Nick, as theirs is a marriage of equal minds, but holds a lingering fascination with Trevor. Jan and Nick have a “point scoring” kind of relationship full of put downs and gentle insults, but ultimately it works for them. Also can be in her 20′s – 30′s.
Nick: Jan’s husband who spends the play complaining, as he in bed with an injured back. Insult is added to injury when Jan kisses Trevor at a party that Nick cannot attend. Also in his 20′s – 30′s.
Kate: Malcolm’s wife and hostess of the housewarming party taking place. A kind soul that offers Trevor a place to stay even when he ruins the party with an epic fight he has with Susannah. Also can be in her 20′s – 30′s.
Malcolm: Kate’s husband. Upset with Trevor for ruining his housewarming party, he vents his frustrations by spending the night putting together furniture. Kate and Malcolm have a lively relationship and are always playing pranks on each other. Also in his 20′s – 30′s.
