Where: First Baptist Church of Maryville


What:
What we have here are five hopelessly lost souls, all stacked up in a bar on Valentine’s Day 1974. The monologues they share are essentially their thoughts, as none of the characters actually communicate with each other in the play, with the exception of possible gesturing back and forth with the bartender (who never speaks).

Wanda, late forties (or possibly older, does not matter)- a former secretary turned school teacher, who tries to keep the memory of hope and idealism alive by keeping the memories of “Camelot” alive, regardless of inevitable backlash

Sparger, 35-50, a bitter, cynical actor, fed up with the commercialism and excess that has become of the New York underground theatre.

Rona, 30-40, Radical political activist, seeing the “Movement” collapse under its own self indulgence. Could very easily be portrayed younger. Promiscuous, free love hippie type.

Mark, 20-30, drug addled and hopelessly addicted Vietnam vet. Dissipated and confused, but VERY intense. Monologue consists of letters written to his mother, but never sent.

Carla, 26, period- Maniacal actress. She channels Marilyn, or believes she does, anyway. Terribly tragic character.

Of course, the bartender himself is ageless, and mostly functions as a tie between the others. He is kind of “Everyman”.

All are dealing with the fallout from the euphoria of the ‘60s into the coldness and disillusionment that were the ‘70s, and none of them are dealing with it well. To me it stands as a metaphor for the current state of political disillusionment in the post Obama age, or that is the feeling I intend to convey.

Auditions will include cold reads from the script. Rehearsals begin January 29. Performances will be March 15-18 at Second Harvest Food Bank.
