SHOW DESCRIPTION:
Free and Fair Playwright Festival is a theatre experience that highlights voter suppression laws in a satirical, comedic way through a fake playwright competition. Playwrights Gabrielle Fox and K. Lorrel Manning have created the fake "playwrights/candidates" and have written material for them. This audition is for characters created by Gabrielle Fox.

 

CAST REQUIREMENTS:

 

FRED McCARTHY: (40-70) White, male identifying. Pronouns- He/Him. Straight, entitled playwright. Blustery. May or may not have written a play.

 

DOROTHY ANTHONY: White, female identifying (ancient by cultural standards, she’s anywhere over 50). Pronouns- She/Her. Playwright. Aware of every single bias everyone has but doesn’t know what to do about them. Oh, and she follows the rules.

 

GRAY McBRIDE: Any Age. Gender non-conforming. Pronouns- They/Them. Playwright. Participates but half heartedly because they know this crowd and that they are not taken seriously. (only gender non-conforming actors should submit)

BLANCA CORTEZ: Any age. BIPOC, female identifying. Pronouns-She/Her. Playwright with AOC type vibe. Charming and also over it. 

EDDIE BOOKER: Any age. Black, male identifying. Pronouns-He/Him. Playwright with the passion and creativity of Cory Booker

MORGAN WILDER: Any age, any gender, any race. Stage manager. In control (mostly) headset, ipad etc. …no one ever appreciates the stage manager.

 

CAROL: Any age, any gender, any race. Character created by Dorothy Anthony. College History professor on the first day of school.

 

PASTOR/PARENT: Any age, any gender, any race. Character created by Gray McBride. Could be a reverend, priest, priestess, snake oil salesperson or motivational speaker. No one really knows. But they definitely know how to motivate, inspire, and agitate people into action. Timeless.
