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: 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. 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 company’s compliance officers.
