Dead Man’s Cell Phone

By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Margo Rodgers
Audition Tues. Sept. 10, 7:00 to 9:30 pm

Characters:

Jean**: sincere, well-intentioned, inquisitive, inventive storyteller
Gordon:  a rather self-centered dead man
Dwight:  Gordon’s brother. Unassuming, gentle, endearing
Mrs. Gottlieb:  Mother of Gordon and Dwight.  Blunt, cantankerous, frostily elegant
Carlotta**  Plays two roles– Gordon’s mistress and a business associate
Hermia: Gordon’s widow. Emotionally estranged; outrageously honest with a drink in hand
3 Ensemble: Non verbal performance. Movement. Not Dance. No jazz hands. Probably throwing things…artistically. Perhaps a wee bit of clowning. Moves quickly.

**will participate in some stage combat
