Audition Description

Set in the viewing room of a middle American funeral parlour, Chester (recently deceased) is sent back to face his family. He thinks he's been more than adequate as a father and husband. The family have other ideas.

Whilst this is a comedy, it needs to be played very straight and not purely for laughs (true of every comedy, really). For example, the character Matthew is very sarcastic and we need to be able to see/feel the pain hidden behind the sarcasm. Similarly with the character of Florence, her confusion needs to be sensitively played. It's still a comedy though, so excellent comic timing is still required!

  • Role #1 - Chester

    Recently deceased father, ex-navy, almost obsessively frugal during his life. NOTE: The actor will be on stage for the entire play and must not be claustrophobic, as they spend a lot of time in a coffin – with the lid closed for a short time.
