REHEARSAL START DATE: TBA
Performance dates are January 6-22, 2023
MARTHA: (Age Range- 50s)
Provocative, frustrated, alcoholic, loving wife of George, playful and dangerous in her volatility and biting
tongue. She hides her self-contempt behind her gin and fantasy as she teases her young guests. Daughter
of the college president. Depending upon the light, looks younger than her age. Tries to act it, too.
GEORGE: (Age Range- 40s-50s)
Once brimming with potential, now a failure of a college history professor. Beaten down, yet devoted and
enabling husband to Martha. Tired, with a bit of paunch. Haunted still by incidents from long ago. Seems
passive and complacent, yet he proves he gives as good as he gets.
Ambitious, bright, former athlete, clean-cut Midwestern blond assistant professor, new to campus. Married
Honey because she said she was pregnant. Too accommodating to Martha’s flirting.
Naive, frail, submissive wife of young professor Nick. “Slim-hipped” and a dim bulb with a weak stomach.
Escapes into a bottle of brandy to survive the night’s gauntlet.
No monologue is necessary. The audition will consist of cold readings from the script.
A headshot and resume are recommended but not required.
Please bring a detailed list of conflicts for the next 3 months.
