A LOVE AFFAIR – Auditions
18 July 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Written By: JERRY MAYER
Director : Lesley Reed
Can financial reversals ruin or even reinforce a marriage? What if you could talk to your younger self or, indeed, talk to your older self, about what’s ahead or behind you on the rollercoaster of marriage?
It’s the early 1990s and like a lot of people of the time, Alice and Jimmy Diamond have had a downward turn in their finances, forcing them to move into a cramped condo. As they clear out the attic of their Malibu home they relive their marriage of 38 years. Their younger selves are often present, allowing for poignant, brutally honest and amusing insights into decades of love, pain and laughter…with a sexy sprinkle of spice. Award-winning play.
“Terrific. An illuminating look at a long-term marital relationship”-Hollywood Reporter.
There are five in the cast: 3 female (2 already cast), 2 male.
Roles available at audition are:
• Jimmy: Stage age early 20’s. Naïve and eager, capable but disorganized. Leaves most things to wife Alice.
• Jimmy II: Stage age around 60. Still disorganised, still leaves most things to wife Alice. Now comically bitter and disillusioned.
• Multiple female characters: played by one female actor, age 30-35. Actor needs capacity to realistically portray different characters possibly varying in age, from sexy actress to no-nonsense reporter.
Note: Jimmy and Jimmy II must appear enough alike to be believable as the same person at different ages.
Alice and Alice II ARE ALREADY CAST.
American accents are required for all roles.
Park Holme Community Hall, 638 Marion Road, PARK HOLME (corner Wallala Avenue & Marion Road)
