Set in picture perfect Flaming Tree Grove, the play is about the tragic dilemma of a couple, Ray and Sylvie, trying to cope with the disappearance of their daughter, Ruby, who goes missing while on the way to visit her grandmother at the end of the cul-de-sac. The narrative turns into a detective story as the couple conduct their own investigation, visiting a parade of eccentric characters who inhabit the neighbourhood. These include a parrot-owning Christian, a would-be clown, a volatile ex-soldier, a seductive torch singer, a doll-obsessed baby-sitter, and a mad scientist.
RUBY MOON, f, 10yr old (although should be played by someone older), small but important role
RAY MOON, m, 30s/40s, strong personality, a rock for his wife
SYLVIE MOON, f, 30s/40s, unstable and deeply affected by Ruby’s disappearance
SID CRAVEN, m, 40s+, clown and mime, a bit creepy
DULCIE DOILY, f, 40s+, very religious
VERONICA VALE, f, 20s, attractive torch singer (will need to prepare acapella song for audition. Partial strip in play to tease male characters)
SONNY JIM, m, 40s/50s+, ex-soldier with passion for guns
DAWN, f, teenager, babysitter, self-image issues
PROFESSOR OGLE, m, 30s/40s+, a guilt-ridden scientist
CV and headshot. Audition will consist of a script extract, an improvisation, a short interview.
