DEATHTRAP

A Thriller by Ira Levin

Auditions: Monday, January 31 and Tuesday, February 1

Seeking: 3 Men ages 20+ / 2 Women 30+

DEATHTRAP tells the story of Sidney Bruhl (a professional playwright-turned-professor) who is experiencing a paralyzing writer’s block when he receives the manuscript of a new play from a student. The student’s play is so astonishingly good, the playwright quips to his wife that he would gladly kill to get his hands on such a script. He then devises a scheme to bring the student into his house (ostensibly) to help him polish his play. It isn’t long before the plot of the student’s play (which is called DEATHTRAP) begins to be played out in reality. NEWSWEEK wrote that “DEATHTRAP is like a ride on a good roller-coaster when screams and laughs mingle to form an enjoyable hysteria.” The cast includes Sidney, his wife, the student, a psychic from the Netherlands and Sidney’s attorney. Having clocked over 1700 performances, DEATHTRAP remains Broadway’s longest-running thriller. (Rehearsals will begin on February 17th.)

SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR

A Play by Bernard Slade

Auditions: Wednesday, February 2 and Thursday, February 3

Seeking: 1 Man / 1 Woman

George and Doris are two relatively innocent bystanders of the Sexual Revolution of the 1960’s. They are two married people with six children between them who meet at an inn in Northern California in 1951 and have an affair. Although they form a profound attachment to each other, neither wants to jeopardize their marriages, so they agree to meet only once a year: a contract they dutifully (and happily) fulfill for the next 25 years. The play uses their unusual affair – not as a cause for judgment – but as a way of portraying two of the most tumultuous decades of the twentieth century. Actors should be able to convincingly play characters who age from their early 30’s to their late 50’s. Clive Barnes called SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR “the funniest comedy about love and adultery to come to Broadway in years.” (Rehearsals for the show will begin on March 21st.)
