Gruesome Playground Injuries
25 May, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
About the Show:
Gruesome Playground Injuries, it’s love at first sight for Kayleen and Doug. Of course, they’re only eight years old, and what fascinates them about each other is that they’re both twisted little souls.
Over the course of Rajiv Joseph’s play, we follow the relationship over the course of 30 years – mostly in emergency rooms or other places with sickbeds. The two characters’ souls don’t stay small, but they do remain in a state most folks might call twisted.
Gruesome Playground Injuries doesn’t present the relationship between its two characters straightforwardly. That’s OK, because they are hardly straightforward personalities. The action jumps around in time, backward and forward, over five-year increments.
Kayleen – presented at ages 8, 13, 18, 23, 28, 33, 38
Doug – presented at ages 8, 13, 18, 23, 28, 33, 38
I will be looking for two actors of similar age (25 – 35) who are able to easily portray the characters at all points in their journey.
The audition will be an open call format, starting with whole group improvisation activities.
All actors are required to prepare a 2 min monologue that shows their ability. They will, perform these individually.
Actors will then be required to read in pairs a short excerpt from the script that will be provided on the night.
