additional auditions - COCK - Nearly Naked Theatre

NEARLY NAKED THEATRE
will be holding additional auditions for
COCK
by Mike Bartlett
directed by Damon Dering

SEEKING ADDITIONAL CANDIDATES FOR THE ROLES OF “JOHN” AND “M”
(Males, age range 20-35)

John’s boyfriend will wait for him while he “figures himself out.”  But so will John’s girlfriend. This deliciously witty dark comedy, told will pure theatricality, is an engagingly unique perspective on affairs of the heart... and that OTHER part of the body. WINNER of the Larewnce Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement, COCK presents actors with a unique challenge... a play completely free of distractions.  The total focus of every scene is on the words and acting.  The playwright calls for NO SET, NO PROPS and NO MIMING of invisible props... and yet, there’s a dinner party.  Come be a part of this very intriguing spectacle!

STIPEND RANGE: $150 - $350

NEEDED
2 men between the ages of 18-35

CHARACTERS
“JOHN” (male 25-35) After several years in a relationship, he suddenly needs to “find himself.” His fear of commitment, or perhaps just his incredible self-involvement, make him unable to choose between two people who love him. It’s never clear what he likes more, affection... or attention. THIS ROLE REQUIRES NUDITY.
“M” (male 25-35) John’s longterm boyfriend.  Is he truly in love with John, or does he just like being walked on and left on the hook? Compassionate, needy and maybe a little too understanding. THIS
ROLE REQUIRES NUDITY.

AUDITIONS
will be held BY AVAILABILITY, Rehearsals begin next week.
