Audition Description

This Pulitzer prize-nominated play tells the story of Leo, a disconnected 21 year-old boy who has had a number of personal setbacks and a particular tragedy as he cycled across the US to New York, to be with his 90 year-old grandmother, Vera, as he has no-one else to turn to. Vera is a feisty Marxist who is struggling with the challenges of ageing and loss of long-standing friends. Leo and Vera share time together, finding common ground as they reveal painful and sometimes unexpected events in their respective lives. Leo's girlfriend Becca arrives to break up with Leo, whom she regards as aimless, further adding to his pain. During a brief fling with a young chirpy, uninhibited but fiercely anti-Communist student, Leo reveals more of his life and family. The bond between Leo and Vera strengthens as they share a further sad event. This is a poignant and moving story shared across a two generational gap. It deals with the human condition in a touching and very meaningful way.

-Bring a monologue not longer than 3 minutes, your head shot/resume and be prepared to possibly read sides.

  • Leo's step grandmother is 90 years old, but retains her radical leftist political views, in spite of her physical and mental challenges of hearing, balance and memory loss. She is the last survivor of a group of Marxists, and defiantly lives alone, never having had her own children. She and Leo are odd soul mates and share their losses, regrets and frustrations. She is tough but has a very warm heart. A major role for an experienced actor able to inhabit this fascinating soul.

    A Chinese-American fashion-forward student who Leo has picked up in a bar. She aspires to becoming an international art star. Her family is wealthy, running a dim-sum empire. She is a drunk and rather wild and uninhibited but passionately anti-communist. Their brief relationship goes nowhere. A small but meaty role for an experienced and expressive actor.

  • He is a free-spirited but emotionally damaged young man of 21 years, who has cycled across the US, and is coping with a tragedy en route.

This is a major role for an experienced actor willing to explore the nuances of this complex character.
