Audition Description

THE STORY: A sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino, are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll, which they are much interested in, to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. Sam had apparently been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll across the Canadian border, not knowing that sewn inside were several grams of heroin. When the woman is murdered the situation becomes more urgent. The con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman's murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. She refuses to reveal its location, and with the help of a young neighbor, figures out she is the victim of a bizarre charade. But when Roat kills his associates, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues between the two. Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules, so when darkness falls she turns off all the lights leaving both of them to maneuver in the dark until the game ends.


  • Role #1 - Mike Talman

    At one time, Mike was a decent human being, and still has impulses that way – unlike Roat or Carlino, Mike has natural empathy and compassion, but life threw some bad things his way and he never settled into a respectable existence. He is rootless and alone in the world, and has some bad habits, gambling chief among them.

  • Role #2 - Sergeant Carlino

    Carlino is a small-time grifter. He is a coarse, uneducated man who isn't bothered by much of a conscience. He lives from day to day just trying to survive in a world in which is never the sharpest guy in the room, whatever room he's in. He's not a cruel or sadistic person, but he does what he has to do in order to survive without a lot of dithering about right or wrong. He is a fairly good con man, although he's never the brains behind any scheme – but he has an air of authority and that makes him a natural for impersonating police officers.

  • Role #3 - Harry Roat

    Roat is a true sociopath. He has no empathy for anyone, and he has a sadistic streak a mile wide. Like many sociopaths, he is highly intelligent and manipulates people with ease. He is an excellent con man, although, unlike Mike and Carlino, that's not Roat's only game – he's a versatile and audacious criminal and will do anything for money or even thrills. He enjoys seeing others in pain. He has no conscience whatsoever.

  • Role #4 - Susy Hendrix

    Susy is a vivacious young woman who was blinded in a car accident a year ago. Possessed of a very strong will, she decided not long after her accident that she would not let it ruin her life. She met Sam a few months after the accident and was drawn to his refusal to see her as handicapped. His unsentimental way of dealing with her blindness gives her strength, and she loves him for it.

  • Role #5 - Sam Hendrix

    Sam is a tough ex-marine and a man who has lifted himself up by his own bootstraps. He is intelligent, but not an intellectual. He's a practical man, not a dreamer or a ditherer. Having created a decent life for himself out of nothing, he is content; he never wallows in sentiment and, while he has a very sensitive side, he is not comfortable showing it, even to Susy.

  • Role #6 - Gloria

    Gloria is at that very awkward age between childhood and adolescence. She is a bright child and has a good heart, but her home life is fairly rough (her mother is undependable and her father abandoned the family not long ago) and she's terribly uncomfortable in her body. Gloria wants desperately to be seen like a young woman – but she is very much still mired in childhood. She can be very petty and given to tantrums, and she has a vague crush on Sam which makes her jealous of Susy. Like most immature people in such a situation, she blames Susy for "coming between" her and Sam.

  • Role #7 - Policemen

    Two cops come in at the end right after the climax of the play. Both men are serious about their work and very professional. However, they've never seen anything like what greets them at 27B Grogan Street.
