Quick play description: Comfort in the Arms of the Damned is about Tobias. As a child he made friends with the monster in his closet, the demon Xavier. Through dreams and fantasy Xavier helps Tobias cope with childhood trama. Unfortunately, in adulthood, Xavier still has control over Tobias. The play is about Tobias’ struggle to rid himself of Xavier and find love on his own terms.
Xavier has been cast. I am looking for a strong male to play Tobias, a role that involves a great deal of raw emotion. Also needed are the three demon women created by Xavier: Tessa (the motherly figure) Savannah (the desired girlfriend figure) Lisle (erotic fantasy). Also needed is Marysa, who is also real, is the one who Tobias wants to have a relationship with, if only Xavier would let her.
The actual ages of the women will depend on the age of the actor cast as Tobias.
For the audition actors are requested to have a contemporary monologue and be prepared to read from the script. Actors are encouraged to contact Winnie Wenglewick and request a script prior to auditioning, although it is not required.
