In-Person auditions cancelled, due to Covid restrictions. If you wish to audition, you may submit a video submission by midnight Friday, January 14th. Please send to Johnny Revicki at johnny.revicki@gmail.com.

 

Auditionees will be asked to cold read from the script. In addition, we ask that you please prepare a 1-2-minute monologue, though one is not required to audition.

In-person callbacks are set for January 22nd at location TBD, where we will stagger the in-person times to make sure there is no extraneous contact. 

 

Rehearsals will be three nights a week, with specific days and times determined after casting. Performances will be on April 1-3 and 8-10 (Friday and Saturday evenings, and Sunday matinees) at the Leanderthal Distillery in Leander, TX.

 

Synopsis

This wildly popular two-person play finds an exasperated playwright bemoaning the inadequacy of the actresses he’s been auditioning all day, only to be interrupted by one last actress who is seemingly the embodiment of everything he’s just complained about. She manages to get an audition, reading with the playwright, exploring his work of masochism and dominance, all while lightning flashes, thunder crashes, and the power shifts.

Character Breakdown

Vanda Jordan: female-identifying, age 20-40, any race. A struggling actress arriving late for an audition. Smart, sexy, cunning, and quite talented. Much more than she first appears. Vanda spends a significant portion of the play dressed in bra, panties, garter belt, stockings, and heels.

 

Thomas Novachek: male-identifying, late 20s-late 40s, any race. Well-read, exasperated, confident, and distracted. His goals and desires are a bit of an enigma. Thomas spends some portion of the play dressed in just his underwear.

 

NOTE: Way Off Broadway Community Players is committed to working in and creating a culture of consent. Actors must be comfortable in minimal clothing on stage, as both characters are in a state of undress down to their undergarments (bra & underwear) at various points during the play. We are working with a local Intimacy Director and all intimacy will be choreographed collaboratively. We are also working with the SAFE Alliance to provide sensitivity and trauma training to cast and crew. The theatre company’s Whistleblower Policy will be available for review at auditions, and it will be reviewed again during the first rehearsal by one of the theatre company’s compliance officers. Any and all specific questions can be directed to Johnny Revicki at johnny.revicki@gmail.com and Nick Wigg at bignickwigg@gmail.com.
