Blame it on Beckett by John Morogiello

Directed by David Dossey

At the Gaithersburg Arts Barn

311 Kent Square Road – Gaithersburg, MD 20877

The Play:
Heidi Bishop is a wide-eyed dramaturgy intern, eager to better American drama. What she encounters instead is an endless stream of bad scripts by desperate playwrights and an office filled with cynicism and turf battles. When Heidi’s efforts to improve things run into unintended consequences, she is forced to confront idealism with reality to save her career, reputation, and relationships.

Characters:
Heidi Bishop: Approximately 25 – an intern in the literary department. She is energetic, efficient, ambitions but somewhat naive in her desire to help people and immediately improve things.

Jim Foley: Approximately 40 – dramaturge. Fast-talking, bitter, and irreverently hilarious. He has become jaded due to a lack of appreciation. Hates that his life consists of reading bad scripts.

John Braschi: Approximately 35 – the general manager of the theater. Desperate to escape non-profit theater for the lucrative potential of Broadway. On the surface he is all smiles and charm. Beneath that veneer, he is ruthless and manipulative.

Tina Fike: Approximately 60, a famous playwright. Little patience for anyone who isn’t supporting her, but quick to appreciate those who do.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

Performances are Jan. 10 – 26, 2014

Please be prepared to identify any conflicts.
