AUDITIONS FOR OUR NEXT MAIN SEASON PLAY COMING THIS JUNE...
ALL ARE WELCOME (experienced or first time actors), Came along and read
There are plenty of roles to be filled with 11 main characters; 5 females, 6 males... As well as Actors, Kevin requires a Producer and a Stage Manager, these are vital engine-room positions driving the show and help and advice is available from experienced Rondo crew.
This drama was written by Australian writer Stephen Sewell, but is set in New York after 9/11 and in the BUSH era. Our hero, Talbot, is an expatriate Aussie Lecturer at a New York University who cannot restrain his criticism of the repressive actions by America in response to the War on Terror. He publicly denigrates US anti-terrorism laws, every chance he gets .... in his lectures, at dinner parties… His free speech is finally pounced upon by the CIA with a heavy pistol whipping scene thrown in.
Mysteriously, the CIA operative appears only to Talbot .... is he real or imaginary ?? – as he returns again and again to taunt and destroy Talbot’s life. The play develops as a high energy drama, finally leading to Talbot’s torture and disappearance.
NOTE FOR AUDTIONS: The director will audition as normal voice - which is more relaxed - but there will be an advantage if you can read American parts with an accent, so they will do some tests of your American accents.
