Audition Description

The entire play is in Yiddish and consequently all actors must speak Yiddish and must be able to do comedy. THE TENTH MAN is an ensemble piece. It is a world gone by; an American retelling of the dybbuk story, taking place on Long Island in the late 1950's. Who is really possessed: the young compassionate religious granddaughter of one of the elderly congregants or the successful yet cynical Manhattan lawyer? This play captures the struggle between Jewish generations, youth and old age, cynics and believers, scientists and mystics with a moving and surprising outcome.

PREPARATION:
- All should be excellent actors with abilities to act in foreign languages (experience with Yiddish, German and Hebrew a plus). Actors will be asked to read from one of the monologues provided at the EPA for the role you feel you are most right for. Monologues will be done in English from the English translation of THE TENTH MAN by Eleanor Reissa. You will also be asked to speak a line of Yiddish that is included with the sides.
- Bring a headshot and resume, stapled together.

    An attorney; divorced, angry, cynical, even somewhat suicidal. He is (unknowingly to himself) possessed by an inner demon that has eaten up whatever love is in him. He appears hard, cold but deep down he is not. He is just broken.
