5/5 & 5/6 Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them at Edge

AUDITION NOTICE at The Edge Theater Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them

By Christopher Durang

Directed by Seth Rossman

Auditions are May 5 & 6 (11 AM – 2 PM); Callbacks are May 7 (7-10 PM).

Both males and females should have a contemporary comedic monologue, 1-2 minutes in length.

How the Story Begins: Felicity wakes up in a cheap hotel room only to find that she has married a quick tempered chap name Zamir. He claims to be Irish and is given to announcements like, “It’s a flaw in my character but all of the women in his family are dead.” He might be a terrorist. Character descriptions (4 m, 3 f)


FELICITY – a perfectly nice young woman – 25 to early 30’s

LUELLA – Felicity’s mother – June Cleaver-type – somewhat befuddled – late 40s to mid-50’s

HILDEGARDE – old-fashioned, conservative, lady-like with a crush on Leonard – mid-40s to late 50s

LEONARD – Felicity’s father – He’s right about everything. Strong-minded, extremely conservative – late 40s to late 50s

ZAMIR – generic Middle Eastern or Mediterranean look – sounds American – charismatic, mysterious – mid-20s to mid-30s

REVEREND MIKE – a minister who directs porno movies – likable, debauched – late 30s to early 50s

VOICE/NARRATOR – male – well-spoken, but at times he’s suave; at times he speaks in Looney Tunes voices – must sing – late 20s to late 40s
