Audition Description

Set in 2003 during the fleeting days of the rebel war that ousted Charles Taylor, Liberia's long-term dictator. The play takes place in the bullet-riddled walls of an army camp for Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy, where the captive wives of the commanding officer of a rebel faction are forced to live. Helena and Bessie, two of the captive wives, attempt to hide The Girl from the commanding officer to prevent her rape and confinement as a sexual slave. Maima, a former wife, visits them frequently and encourages the women to liberate themselves by joining the rebels in combat against their enemy. Rita, a member of the Liberian Women's Initiative for Peace visits to encourage the women to confront the warlords and agree to a ceasefire through peaceful negotiations with the Initiative. When the war ends at the end of the play, Rita comes to encourage the women to abandon their captor. The wives are left with the choice of remaining captive to the C.O. or leaving to rebuild themselves into the new state of Liberia.

  • Role #1 - Helena

    Liberian: Matriarch of the captive wives. A strong maternal figure. Has been with the general for longer than she can remember and serves him out of fear. A survivor, she is blunt, strict, and protective of the other wives. Territorial, Helena shuns outsiders and the unknown. NOTE: Only actors 18 and older will be considered for this role.

  • Role #2 - Bessie

    Liberian: Second captive wife of the general. Frisky, youthful rebellious energy but also knows when to stay in her lane. Has seen many wives come and go through the compound and is afraid she might disappear one day as well. Outspoken without much tact, she is much like a child herself, though she is six months pregnant at the start of the play. Actor should have a sense of comedy and playfulness as Bessie is oftentimes the comic relief in the play. NOTE: Only actors 18 and older will be considered for this role.

  • Role #3 - The Girl

    Liberian: The heartbeat of the story. The youngest and newest addition to the general's captive wives. A refugee orphan fleeing the violence in her region. Innocently curious but courageous when she allows herself to be. Introverted with many secrets and possesses a quiet steely determination to survive. Deeply vulnerable. NOTE: Only actors 18 and older will be considered for this role.

  • Liberian: An emissary from the Liberian Women's Initiative. Worldly, upper class, and well educated. New to the struggle for peace in the region, and awkward with others due to her social status. Rita is quietly trying to find her missing daughter. Constantly on edge—but able to maintain a gentle quality—as she attempts to bring these women out of the dangerous environment of their captivity.
