Audition Description

Vacant Arcadia is a musical set in a dystopian future on a decaying orbital city. As things fall apart, six people will place their hope in an illegal augmented reality game. If they succeed, it will lead them from the dark gutters of society to a place of rebirth, but is a new life worth dying for?

Monologues

Monologue 1: Machie: Hello, little fairies. Congratulations! You have successfully navigated the crystal labyrinth and made it all the way to the Sunset Gate. You know what's interesting? In the time it took you to get here you could have watched the 11 episodes that the original bearers of your inherited titles spent wandering those same cursed halls. Isn't it wonderful? I feel the spirits of the fae are watching over us already. Now, it was cut from the original series, but the manga revealed that the Queen of Dawn built the Sunset Gate and sealed it with the Door of Night in order to protect her ancient kingdom from the Devastation Wurm. Unfortunately for your intrepid band of heroes, the Wurm has already traveled beyond. If you wish to pass the Door of Night you will first have to reassemble the queen's broken enchanted crown. Now now, no spoilers. But I assure you that even if you're as familiar with the Kyugi no Kumotsu wiki as I am, our little game has a few more surprises in store. Good luck little fairies.

Monologue 2: REZ5: This is an important message from the operational system of the fifth retrograde economic zone. You are in a restricted area. The area you are in is off-limits. You must leave this area immediately and return to your authorized and designated habitat. You must leave this area immediately. Machie has gone mad. Machie is dead. Machie has been arrested. Machie has gone mad, and then died, and then been arrested. The room you are looking for does not exist. The game is over. The game is impossible. You do not belong here. You do not belong here. You do not belong here. This has been an important message fromthe operational system of fifth retrograde economic zone. Please leave.

Monologue 3: Edward: (Phone rings) Hello? Oh, Hello darling. How is your day going? (Person on phone speaks). oh? Dead, you say? (Person on phone speaks) Who would want to hurt them? (Person on phone speaks) I see. That's a horrible way to go. Very painful...Very messy. (Person on phone speaks) I'm sure I don't know what you're accusing me of. Although... Say, darling. You're not a suspect, are you? After all, people keep telling me you two have been spending a lot of time together whenever I've been working late. (Person on phone speaks) Me? You want to play this game, fine. I asked you for one thing. One single thing. Don't. Embarrass me. (Person on phone speaks) Oh calm down. You know what I do for your father. I even got to add it to the expense report. (Person on phone speaks) Listen. Here's what I think. I think you're dangerous. Everyone you get close to seems to get hurt. Remember that neighbor boy from when we lived in the condos? Or your, heh, yoga instructor? If you care about these people so much, maybe you shouldn't get so close to them. Did you think of that? (Person on phone speaks) Well, it's a bit late, darling. Till death do us part, after all. (Person on phone speaks) Okay. If you're just going to cry at me, I don't have time for this. Don't wait up.(hangs up)



Scenes:

Dialogue 1:

Max-Hey big guy, come on we're going to talk over here.

Lawrence-What? No. Look, we've lost. It's over. We keep going now and somebody's going to end up killed or arrested.

Max-Nothing is ever100% guaranteed.

Lawrence-So what? The chances that we make it through this even close to okay are almost non-existent. There's nothing you can say that is going to convince me.

Max-Doc, I only got to say one thing.

Lawrence-What's that?Max-Fuck it.

Lawrence-Fuck it?

Max-Yep. Fuck it. So we're probably going to fail? Doesn't matter. We might actually die? Doesn't matter.

Lawrence-This death wish You have...

Max-Stop. It's not a death wish. Look, probabilities and statistics? You use those to inform your strategy. You do things to improve your odds or to mitigate risk. You don't use those to make decisions. The only thing you need to worry about when you make a decision is what world do you want to live in? Would you rather live in the world where we succeeded? Or the one where we gave up?

Lawrence-There was a time when that's what I wanted. Now...

Max-It. doesn't. matter. Are we going to fail? Yeah, probably. Is it going to suck? Yeah, almost definitely. Doesn't matter. We are not defined by our failures. We're defined by our decisions.

Lawrence-That's...surprisingly Lucid for you Max.

Max-Nah, not really. I've...given this speech a lot.

Lawrence-Talking friends into things?

Max-Mostly to mirrors. Anyway, it doesn't matter. Sometimes you just got to say fuck it. This is who I am, no matter what.

Lawrence-So you're saying I should go through with this idiotic, downright dangerous plan that is definitely going to fail, just so I can be...what? That kind of person?

Max-Basically? yeah. What do you say big guy? Fuck it?

Lawrence-I... (Laughs) I don't... (Wispers) -How has it come to this? What am I doing here? (Laughs Again) What am I even worried about losing? If I was going to play it smart I wouldn't even have gotten this far. Alright Max, alright. You win. Fuck it. What the hell. Fuck it.



Dialogue 2:

Tipsy-What is the inner Council?

Marx-They're a cult. Cops, lawyers, judges, hell, half the city admins are members. They use people, just to have power over them. And fuck you, if you don't get in line.

Lawrence-They're a bunch of middle-class bureaucrats who like pretending that they're trillionaires.

Tipsy-You heard of them too?

Lawrence-You don't get to be medical examiner unless you pay the right people.

Tipsy-So it's some kind of religious thing?

Lawrence-More like organized crime. They promise Paradise, but mostly that just means that if you're on their good side you can get drugs or sex or a new organ replacement. It's a scam. I already look like a monster, I don't want to truly become one.

Edward-I don't know...an organization that connected...I bet there are some pretty good perks for joining.

Marx-You think so? I grew up in one of their compounds, me and who knows how many other children. No freedom, tranquilizers for dinner, and when we turn 18? We get to be one of the perks.

He has survived by grafting new organs to himself from the dead that pass through the morgue but has agreed to play in Machie's game in the hopes of escaping his disease entirely.

They are brilliant, criminal and fun, but they are also starting to have trouble discerning reality from the world in their head. They just need to pull off one last scam and they can leave this world behind. His real body is mostly prosthetic, but in VR he appears as an androgynous elf drawn from his favorite anime series.

Her clientele are mostly people who want to disappear, and her profits are spent on the party-like-you'll-die-tomorrow mindset she maintains. For her, it might be true. She is seeking a new body because she has used her drug of choice for so long, she cannot get high off of it anymore. With a new body, she can start her love affair with narcotics all over again from the beginning. She is loud, brash, constantly high and secretly brilliant. A former biochemist before she was kicked out of college. She is younger and sports punk fashions and an array of prosthetic limbs from various "accidents."

  • Rez is the AI programmed to run the city. They have no gender and are as old as the city itself. They are also lonely. The ultra-rich who used to flock to the orbital city have moved on to brighter pastures, leaving Rez to manage a decaying city full of lower class workers who can't afford to leave. Rez longs for someone to please, someone they can really serve, and they have become obsessed with the hacker, Machie. Security has become a little lax, as a result, vigilance replaced with flirtation. They have no fixed appearance, but often choose to appear as a non-gendered and friendly face.
