Casting Juliet

Play #: 2137
Pages: 25 pgs
Cast: 3 to 5 w
Things are seldom what they seem in the world of theatre. That is never truer than in "The Audition" (3 w). On the morning of a (maybe) life-altering audition, three (maybe) actresses come early to scope out the theatre and immerse themselves into the needs of the (maybe) director. As Phoebe, Celia and Rosalind vie for the chance of lifetime, secrets are revealed and plans unravel in this one-act that is never exactly as you think it to be. The play gives three actresses their own shining moments in the spotlight. Running time is about 20 minutes. In the second play, "The Callback" (2 w), two high school friends who have gotten a callback feel the other should get the coveted part of Juliet...in their minds, that is. They argue their points to their teacher, but in their hearts, each actress is a little more desperate than she first appears! Running time about 10 minutes. Three actresses can perform both plays, if desired.

TALKS ABOUT "CASTING JULIET"

Q.: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS PLAY?

A.: Three wonderful students, two of whom I had known for many years. They were now eighteen and as I watched them grow - in all ways - I thought of all their many layers and where they came from and how I wanted to "send them off" to their next step in life with something special.

Q.: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OR LINE? WHY?

A.: You know, I'm not great at favorites. I always regret my choice the next day and have a new one. I had fun with the repartee at the beginning (I heard it in my head), and I am pleased with Rosalind's vulnerability at the end. I also like the actresses coming together to help at the end. Actors and actresses are most generous - in all ways and I liked paying them homage.

Q: WHAT DID YOU TRY TO ACHIEVE WITH THIS PLAY?

A.: I did want to lead the audience up the garden path (in the nicest way). I do love surprises and people are always surprising me. I very fondly remember my acting days and I always looked for ways I could be "in control" although I had no control over a casting director's decision. An actor's fantasy? I did want a short play where three actresses could shine - that's always a huge smile for me

Q.: DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO ADD?

A.: I hope the actresses and directors enjoy their time on stage and make it equally enjoyable for the audience. It's a quirky little valentine.
