Auditions: Six Characters in Search of an Author

Six Characters in Search of an Author by Luigi Pirandello

Directed by Jodi Kanter

Pirandello's masterpiece, a study in illusion and reality, follows a group of characters who try to fashion their life stories into acceptable drama. During a theatrical rehearsal, six characters arrive on stage in a quest for immortal life- all they need is an author. As the company observes the characters, their story becomes more real than any actors could ever make it.  Nobel Prize winner Luigi Pirandello’s examination of pretense and theatre has gone on to produce adaptations and spoofs from The Twilight Zone to King of the Hill.

Auditions are Wednesday, 12/4/19, 5:30-9:00pm, and Thursday, 12/5/19, 5:30-9:00pm on the 2nd floor of the Marvin Center (800 20th St NW) in the Leggette Room (room #240).  AUDITIONS ARE OPEN TO THE ENTIRE GWU COMMUNITY REGARDLESS OF MAJOR OR EXPERIENCE.

Callbacks will be Thursday 12/5 from 9:30-10:30pm in the same location. 
Performances will be February 13, 14, 15 at 7:30 and Sunday, February 16, 2020 at 2 pm

For the audition, please prepare the following:

  • A 1-2 minute (keep it short and concise) true story about a moment when you experienced uncertainty as to whether something you were seeing or experiencing was real. Then reading from the attached sides with others- it is suggested you review the sides.
