Audition Description

A gallery of friends, lovers, relatives and theatre acolytes sparkle around stage celebrity Garry Essendine like bubbles in fine champagne. While Garry struggles to plan his upcoming trip to Africa, his elegant London flat is invaded by a love struck ingénue, an adulterous producer and a married seductress, Garry's estranged wife Liz, and the memorable Roland Maule, an aspiring playwright who is quite, quite mad.


Preparation:
- Please bring a resume and headshot. Sides from the script will be provided to audition.

  • Role #1 - Garry Essendine

    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.

    Garry's ex-wife. She is stylish and able to hold her own at a party, alongside (or even in spite of) Garry. Not easily shaken, gracious, witty, but when she lets her guard down, full hearted. Self-possessed and dignified. Must have an excellent British accent and comic timing.

  • Role #3 - Monica Reed

    She is Garry's "Girl Friday" – secretary, pal, and confidant; hard working, professional and efficient. Protective of Garry, but has earned the right to bluntly tell him the truth and kid him mercilessly. Gives as good as she gets. Must have an excellent British accent and comic timing.

  • Role #4 - Roland Maule

    Character role. An aspiring playwright with overblown ideas about his talent, appeal, and social skills. Quite mad. Lofty and grandiose, he is also obsessive, quietly jealous, secretly resentful, and clueless when it comes to social cues or rules regarding personal hygiene. Role requires great comedic sense/timing in order to mine rather outrageous comedy from this part while keeping the character believable. Must have an excellent British accent.

    Hugo's trophy wife. Quite attractive and well dressed. Savvy, coy, yet witty; she's extremely self-assured and has considerable charm.

  • Role #6 - Daphne Stillington

    A pretty, gently-bred debutante who grew up absolutely idolizing Garry. Quirky and shrewd, she has overblown ideas of her understanding of art and love – she is innocent and calculatingly ambitious in equal parts. A budding social climber, she truly believes she's meant to be Garry's muse. She doesn't realize that her attempts to appear sophisticated are highly transparent. Must have an excellent British accent and comic timing.

    Garry's manager and another member of Garry's "inner circle." Tall and good looking; smart, but with a romantic streak.

    Character role. The chain smoking Swedish housekeeper. Unfazed and slow-moving she tackles those chores she sits fit, and in her own time. Superstitious and eccentric, she enjoys seances 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.

Got first professtional acting job within one day of signing up.. I just wanted to say thank you so much to Explore Talent. You guys have been wonderful! I have been a member since October. Within one day of signing up I got my first professional acting job in a theatre company outside of Washington DC called The Starving Artist Theatre which made me eligible for an artist grant from the government. Also, I am currently acting with a second company, Element Productions, in Washington DC right now! I could not have found these jobs without Explore! Everyone there has been so helpful; and I find this website easy and extremely essential for anyone starting in the business.
