AUDITION FOR I AND YOU!
Join us and audition for I and YOU by Lauren Gunderson!
Play Synopsis: One afternoon, Anthony arrives unexpectedly at classmate Caroline’s door bearing a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, an urgent assignment from their English teacher. Homebound due to illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months, but she is as quick and sardonic as Anthony is athletic, sensitive, and popular. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, this seemingly mundane poetry project unlocks a much deeper mystery that has brought them together. I and You is an ode to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.
When: Monday, February 20, 2023 at 6:30 pm
Where: 306 s Phoenix Ave.
WE ARE CALLING ACTORS OF ALL ETHNIC GROUPS TO MAKE UP THIS CAST:
ANTHONY: a boy, 17. He is neat, poised, mature for his age. African-American. He’s an “A” student, a team player, a nice guy. He’s not really great around girls. He takes his homework very seriously. When he likes something (jazz music) he is all in. Throughout the whole play he looks at Caroline like he’s trying to figure her out. Like he really needs to know who she is.
CAROLINE: a girl, 17. White. She is in comfy clothing, she does not expect company. She is sick but mainly just looks a little weak and frumpy. She doesn’t go out. She is cynical, over it, does not let a stray “feeling” near the surface.
The race of each character can be altered. The only essentiality is that the characters not be the same race.
Actors will be asked to do cold readings from the script.
We look forward to seeing you!
Audition for I and You!
