Audition Notices

ACT 1 is thrilled to announce auditions for its third production of the 2017/2018 season:

The Pillowman

Auditions will be Monday, November 20th (6-9pm) and Tuesday, November 21st (6-9pm) at Darkhorse Theater (4610 Charlotte Ave., Nashville, TN 37209).

Synopsis: There is a murderer of children lurking in the shadows. You have two suspects (Katurian and Michal) trying to convince two investigators (Tupolski and Ariel) that they have nothing to do with the crimes. There’s only one problem: Katurian has been writing about hurting and killing kids for years. His brother, Michal, is his biggest fan. Tupolski is a seasoned investigator while his partner, Ariel, is a newer, hungrier, investigator. Both work in a totalitarian police state system. They can’t be permitted to have a killer running loose. They can and will use any method possible to get a confession out of the brothers. Meanwhile, dramatic life events come out and Katurian and Michal become targets, despite the fact Michal is on the autism spectrum.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Headshots and résumés are helpful, but not required.

Characters available:

  • Katurian: Male between the ages of 20-40, any race. He is Michal’s brother and protector.
  • Michal: Male between the ages of 20-40, any race. He is “slow to learn things” and says whatever comes into his mind.
  • Tupolski: Male between the ages of 30-50, any race. A veteran investigator.
  • Ariel: Male between the ages of 20-30, any race. A newer investigator who’s sole purpose is to use any violent tactic to get a confession.

The Pillowman is directed by Kurt Jarvis. Performances will be March 2-17, 2018 at the Darkhorse Theater.
