Save the date(s) because The summit Playhouse is holding auditions for our Winter production of GOD OF CARNAGE!
By Yazmina Reza
Directed by Chase Newhart
Production dates: Feb 22 - Mar 9, 2013
Wednesday & Thursday November 14 & 15 at 7p.m.
Callbacks on Sunday November 18 at 1p.m.
All auditions are at the Playhouse, 10 New England Ave., Summit, NJ.
The two couples in "God of Carnage" each have 11 year old boys - who have just had an altercation. (The boys are not seen in the play.)
Veronica (40s - Michael's wife): A writer - she pictures herself as the queen of social conscience and common courtesy - but is really judgemental and domineering. As the situation disintegrates she fails to maintain her crumbling facade of civility.
Michael (40/50s - Veronica's husband): Initially eager to create peace, his uncouth nature is slowly revealed. He makes racial comments, denounces child-raising, and progresses from a seemingly good-natured hardware store supplier/salesperson to a neurotic Neanderthal.
Annette (40s - Alan's wife): At first presenting herself as an elite member of the one percent, she is actually on the brink of a panic attack. Her self-confidence has been eroded by her husband Alan's eternal preoccupation with work.
Alan (40/50s - Annette's husband): An openly rude corporate lawyer, he frequently interrupts their meeting by talking on his cell phone. As he says "I have no manners". At first seen as cool and aloof, he is sexist and always acts in his own self-interest.
Hope to see you there :)
