Cast: 3 men, 2 women

This is a thriller, so physicality is required. For example there are several fight scenes throughout the play.

Spoiler Alert: Of necessity, plot details will need to be revealed during the audition to be able to fully describe the demands of each role.


The auditions will consist of readings of selected scenes from the script. No preparation of monologues or other material is necessary.

Please be prepared to stay for the full length of the auditions (2-3 hours depending on how many show up), so that you can read several scenes opposite most of the other actors auditioning.

The rehearsal schedule will be finalized after casting in order to accommodate the actors as much as possible, but generally will be 3 or 4 rehearsals per week, including one on the weekend. The time commitment will be heavier as we get closer to opening night.
