AUDITIONS! Calling All Actors

We announced our upcoming production of Meron Langsner’s Burning up the Dictionary at out last There Will Be Words reading, but we can’t put up this play without a cast! That’s why we’re holding AUDITIONS on Tuesday, October 9 and Wednesday, October 10.

Sign up by sharing your availability using this Google form and we will schedule you for an audition slot.

The show will run November 28 – December 1 in Rehearsal Hall A at the Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts.

Burning up the Dictionary, as described by playwright Meron Langsner, “feels like ‘When Harry Met Sally’ but possessed by the demonic spirit of Neil LaBute.” It journeys into the tenaciously crumbling relationship of two people who love and need each other but can’t find any room for trust. The play explores the personal language of every relationship and how a common language that once kept people extremely close can also wound and drive them further apart. VTG workshopped this play as part of its There Will Be Words series and are bringing it to full production in November.

Characters:

Suzie-Fay: Female, Mid-late 20s. Smart, sexy, and sweet. Playful, but with an edge. Fun, free, independent. You’ll instantly fall in love with her. She knows this, and will use it. 

George: Male, Mid 20s-early 30s. Sarcastic, playful, and very comfortable in his own skin. You would think he was the Boy Next Door ™.  And you would be very wrong.

Auditions will take place at Zero Point Theater at 265 Franklin Street, Suite 1702, Boston, MA 02110. We hope to see you there!

If you cannot make either audition date, please email Production Manager Erica Magelky at erica@vagabondtheatregroup.com to try to make a special appointment, subject to availability.

Meron Langsner’s Burning Up the Dictionary for TWBW

Hello friends!

We’ve been reading submissions like crazy this past week – on buses, in coffeehouses, thousands of miles in the air and one of us (guess which staff member) even read while in the Dominican Republic on a kiteboarding vacation. After much discussion, we have finally chosen the script we’ll be reading for There Will Be Words on Thursday, May 17 at 7:00 PM at Trident Booksellers & Cafe.

Drum roll, please! Oh wait… I suppose I put the play title and playwright in the header of this post and already ruined the suspense.

Congratulations to Meron Langsner and his play, Burning Up the Dictionary!

Burning up the Dictionary, as described by Meron, feels like “When Harry Met Sally” but possessed by the demonic spirit of Neil LaBute. It journeys into the tenaciously crumbling relationship of two people who love and need each other but can’t find any room for trust. The play explores the personal language of every relationship and how a common language that once kept people extremely close can also wound and drive them further apart.

So mark your calendars, folks, for Thursday, May 17 at 7:00 PM and join us for a reading of this fantastic play!
