God of Carnage

by Yasmina Reza, trans. by Christopher Hampton; directed by Peter Bisgaier

 

October 7 - 23, 2022

CALL TYPE: Paid non-union; $300 stipend

In this Tony and Olivier award-winning comedy, two sets of parents meet for the first time to discuss how to handle a playground altercation between their sons. Over the course of the night, tensions rise, biases are revealed, and the parents’ true humanity (or lack thereof) rise to the surface, resulting in this hilariously uncomfortable meeting of misbehaving adults trapped in the world of parenting.

MICHAEL NOVAK (40s): Male identifying. Any ethnicity.  Owner of a wholesale household goods company; pretty laid back and open-minded until he is not, and then the Neanderthal inside him pokes out.

ALAN RALEIGH (40s-50s): Male identifying.  Any ethnicity.  Any race.  Very successful high-powered attorney who is preoccupied with his work; thinks he is the smartest person in the room and just might be.

VERONICA NOVAK: Already cast

ANNETTE RALEIGH: Already cast

PREPARATION: Please prepare a monologue and bring headshot and resume.

Marjorie Prime

by Jordan Harrison; directed by Jennifer Nasta Zefutie

February 17 - March5, 2023

CALL TYPE: Paid non-union; $300 stipend

This 2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist takes us into the not-too-distant age of artificial intelligence.  Marjorie—a jumble of disparate, fading memories—has a handsome, young companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her, while her family struggles to define what Marjorie should be allowed to remember.  As the years progress, this “elegant, thoughtful, and quietly unsettling drama” (The New York Times) explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits, if any, of what technology can replace.

MARJORIE (to play 70s-80s): Female identifying.  Any ethnicity. Feisty and direct, she's a former violinist battling dementia.  Good at covering up her fears. Struggling to connect with her daughter and has an easier rapport with her son-in-law. Reliant on Walter to remind her of who she once was.

WALTER PRIME (20s-30s): Male identifying. Any ethnicity. An artificial intelligence representation of Marjorie's husband tasked with helping her navigate her fading memories.  Remarkably human most of the time, something of his nonhuman nature comes through when there's a gap in his knowledge or understanding.

TESS (40s-50s): Female identifying.  Any ethnicity.  Marjorie's daughter.  Thoughtful and quietly intense, she's deeply bothered by Walter Prime's presence in her mother's life.  Has never had a close relationship with her mother but has alway wanted one.  Battling depression, but not without humor.

JON (40s-50s): Male identifying, Any ethnicity. Marjorie's son-in-law and Tess's husband.  Tries to be a peace-maker between Marjorie and Tess; is supportive of Walter's presence in Marjorie's life.  Easy-going, warm, sees the good in everyone.

BIPOC actors are strongly encouraged to audition.

PREPARATION: Please prepare a monologue and bring headshot and resume.
