Audition Description

At the center of his own universe sits matinee idol Garry Essendine: suave, hedonistic and too old, says his wife, to be having numerous affairs. His line in harmless, infatuated debutantes is largely tolerated but playing closer to home is not. Just before he escapes on tour to Africa the full extent of his misdemeanors is discovered. And all hell breaks loose.


WE HIGHLY ENCOURAGE ALL ACTORS TO BE FULLY VACCINATED BY THE START OF REHEARSALS.


Please bring a resume and current photo (professional headshots are not required). Walk-ins are welcome, but reserved times are preferred. There will be cold readings from the script. Please come prepared to list ALL conflicts.

  • Role #1 - Gary Esendine

    London\\\'s most celebrated romantic leading man. A debonair matinee idol who never steps out of his own spotlight, even when beset by the demands of friends, lovers, producers, and playwrights. Must have an excellent British accent and comic timing.

    Gender: Male
    Ethnicity: Any
    Age: 50 - 69
    Expiration Date: Dec 4, 2021
  • Role #2 - Liz Essendine

    Garry\\\'s estranged-wife. Stylish and able to hold her own at a party, alongside (or even in spite of) London\\\'s most celebrated, romantic leading man. Not easily shaken, gracious, witty, but when she lets her guard down, full hearted. Self-possessed and dignified. Liz is modern enough about relationships to redefine marriage on her own terms, while somehow not losing her own pride even as she accepts the fickleness of those around her. Must have an excellent British accent and comic timing.

  • Role #3 - Monica Reed

    Garry\\\'s secretary, pal, and confidant. Hard working and indispensable to Garry, she tries to be a taskmaster, but must instead be a bastion of patience, albeit with varying degrees of success. She\\\'s quite competent and great at managing people, but her stress and the lack of time in a day emerge in a sardonic sense of humor. Must have an excellent British accent and comic timing.

  • Role #4 - Roland Maule

    An aspiring, experimental playwright who still lives with his parents in Uckfield. His unfulfilled ambition has left him loudly obsessive, quietly jealous, and secretly resentful. Human psychology eludes him somewhat, so he\\\'s taken to writing dystopian fantasies. Lofty and grandiose, he would love to transform the theater to a world of ideas. Seems gamely unaware of social cues or rules regarding personal hygiene. Needs to be able to mine rather outrageous comedy from this part while remaining tethered to reality. Must have an excellent British accent.

  • Role #5 - Joanna Lyppiatt

    Hugo\\\'s wife. A femme fatale whose appetite for social status is matched only by her other appetites. Savvy, coy, yet witty. One gets the impression that her ambitions were born out of resolutions she made a long time hence. Extremely stylish, she\\\'s aware of her sexual prowess and enjoys leaving others feeling destabilized. Must have an excellent British accent and comic timing.

  • Role #6 - Daphne Stillington

    Garry\\\'s recent dalliance. A pretty, gently-bred debutante who grew up absolutely idolizing Garry Essendine. Quirky and shrewd. Fancies herself a great authority (or at least an admirer) of art and love. She truly believes she\\\'s meant to be Garry\\\'s muse, though how fortune made it possible is awe-inspiring. A budding social climber, she does not realize that her attempts to be more sophisticated than she is are highly transparent. Any touch of innocence about her is balanced by her ambition. Must have an excellent British accent and comic timing.

  • Role #7 - Hugo Lyppiatt

    Garry\\\'s producer. Shrewd and business savvy. Hospitable yet proud. After many years of working with Garry, he appreciates him, but would prefer Garry\\\'s petulance be managed by someone else. He feels he deserves a wife befitting his success, but doesn\\\'t mind indulging a few mistresses on the side. Must have an excellent British accent and comic timing.

  • Role #8 - Morris Dixon

    Garry\\\'s manager. Smart but with a romantic streak. Deferential to a point, but not without taste and a sense of the theater\\\'s tradition. Enjoys being Garry\\\'s artistic sounding board, despite its tumultuous and circuitous challenges. He\\\'s fallen deeply and obsessively in love with Joanna and is carrying on with her behind Hugo\\\'s back, a deception that he\\\'s ill-equipped to keep together. Possibly an angry drunk. Must have an excellent British accent and comic timing.

  • Role #9 - Moss Erikson

    The chain smoking Swedish housekeeper. Unfazed and slow-moving. Tackling those chores she sits fit, and in her own time. Superstitious and eccentric, she enjoys a seance to commune with the dead in her spare time. The living find her strange, and her conversational skills don\\\'t alleviate this. Must have an excellent Swedish accent and comic timing.

  • Garry\\\'s valet. Cockney and cocksure. He\\\'s well-meaning and has found his own rhythm to work, regardless of how others might like to have him do things. His active love life, which he loves to boast about, has him spirited and jaunty. He\\\'s unaware that his unrefined qualities leave persons of substance slightly aghast. Must have an excellent Cockney accent and comic timing.

  • Role #11 - Lady Saltburn

    Daphne\\\'s aristocratic aunt. A model of English propriety. She has helped raise Daphne with the proper values befitting a young woman, but as a patron of the arts, she has indulged Daphne\\\'s hope of being an actress. In another life, she might have enjoyed being an actress herself, but not in this life to be certain. Her duty to her family and country run deep. Must have an excellent British accent and comic timing.
