Audition Description

The Outsider: The Outsiders is a coming-of-age novel by S. E. Hinton, first published in 1967. Hinton was 15 when she started writing the novel but did most of the work when she was 16 and a junior in high school. Hinton was 18 when the book was published. The book details the conflict between two rival gangs divided by their socioeconomic status: the working-class "greasers" and the upper-class "Socs". The story is told in first-person perspective by teenaged protagonist Ponyboy Curtis.

The Father: Andre is a man facing persecution from all sides, and he refuses to take it any longer. First some girl, a "helper" -- whom he doesn't need at all -- steals his favorite watch. Then his daughter Anne, a scheming woman who worries too much, tries to take his flat away -- the beautiful flat he's had for over thirty years, in which he is still quite capable of living, thank you very much! His daughter Elise, the one he actually loves… where is she? She never comes to visit. Anne's husband -- or lover -- Pierre, with whom she is moving to London -- or staying in Paris -- threatens Andre with violence if he will not cooperate, and to top it off, strangers keep entering Andre's flat, telling him that they are his friends and family, telling him that he doesn't live in his flat anymore. However aged he may be, Andre knows that he is a powerful man, a man of authority, and he will find some way to assert it. After all, he still has all his faculties…. Doesn't he? In a darkly humorous and deeply poignant translation by Christopher Hampton, Florian Zeller's The Father is a tragi-comic mystery, a sobering and realistic family story, and an unsentimental, emotionally intense look at the world through the eyes of a man experiencing dementia, a dramatic illustration of the physical losses which occur along with the mental ones.

The Lifespan of a Fact: A determined young fact checker is about to stir up trouble. The demanding editor has given him a big assignment: apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by the unorthodox author. Together, they take on the high-stakes world of publishing in this new comedy of conflict. The ultimate showdown between fact and fiction is about to begin—with undeniably delicious consequences.

Ben Butler: Ben Butler is, for the most part, a rip-roaring comedy. General Benjamin Franklin Butler arrives at Fort Monroe to hear by-the-book West Point Graduate Lieutenant Kelly announce that three escaped slaves have entered the fort: one of them demands to see the General. Butler is indignant. The only people who can make demands on him are President Lincoln, the President's cabinet, higher ranking officials, and…his wife. What follows is a silly linguistic tennis match, a contest reminiscent of wordsmiths high and low . Eventually, we meet the memorable Shepard Mallory, who, with unseen fellow slaves Frank Baker and James Townsend, has escaped captivity and is requesting asylum.
