Auditions for "Morticians in Love" by Christi Stewart-Brown.
Performances: February 4 - March 4, 2017.
All auditioners, please arrive at 7pm. Callbacks, if needed, will follow auditions on Tuesday.
Every body should love death this much.
A shy mortuary owner and her assistant toil alone among the dead until the arrival of a handsome rival mortician who wants to share more than workspace. And the two corpses make five. "V-day is all but dead - flowers and chocolates, formaldehyde and chloroform"
The play has no nudity, although the corpses will be scantily clad and there are adult sexual situations.
"In the midst of death, there is life and love-sacred, profane, unrequited and almost always dysfunctional-in Christi Stewart-Brown's very black, five-character comedy (counting two corpses). Scarcely fare for the squeamish, with its excursions into heterosexual and homosexual couplings among the living and dead, the play nonetheless comes off as a caustic, funny, sharp-eyed autopsy on the difficulties of love...Morticians in Love may be morbid, but it has a heart."
St. John, a male mortician: 30-50
Limer, Lydia's androgynous assistant: 30-50
Handsome male corpse: 20-30 (nonspeaking, but considerable acting required)
Rehearsals begin January 16 every Monday through Thursday until performance.
Eight performances (see above): Friday, Feb 24 through Saturday March 4.
