audition notice -THREESOME - Nearly Naked Theatre - December 4


NEARLY NAKED THEATRE will be holding auditions for the ARIZONA PREMIERE of

THREESOME
by Yussef El Guindi
directed by Damon Dering  

ASSIMILATING INTO AMERICAN CULTURE CAN BE TRICKY...
Leila & Rashad,  young, hip Egyptian-Americans decide they can do anything a typical American couple can do... which includes inviting a relative stranger into their bedroom!  What begins as a hilarious evening of awkward culture-clashes eventually becomes an experience fraught with secrets; raising issues of sexism, racism, possession and even independence.  This intensely provocative production is precisely the comedy needed now, as the drama of our world escalates, and we must find ways to laugh through our pain.

NEEDED
1 Man & 1 Women
aged 18-40, arab-american, north-african or latino/a.
A third character, a Caucasian male age 25, is pre-cast.

CHARACTERS
LEILA (female 18-40): Smart and witty, maybe with a slight accent, Leila has written a book on the Arab-American experience that she hopes will empower a new generation of women.  The problem is, she decided to be completely honest, and her boyfriend hasn’t read the book yet.  Leila has many dark secrets that she is ready to share with the world, but maybe not with the man in her bed. THIS ROLE REQUIRES NUDITY.

RASHAD (male 18-40): A handsome and open-minded young photographer, he was raised in the U.S. from a young age, so he has no accent and is fully “integrated” as far as he’s concerned. So when his girlfriend said “threesome” he said “Hell yeah!”  Of course, he thought she meant two girls.  He thinks he’s ready for anything in a relationship that an “American” guy can handle... he’ wrong. THIS ROLE REQUIRES AT LEAST PARTIAL NUDITY.

DOUG (male 25, caucasian).  Doug is a sexy, confident, well-adjusted American idiot.  Except he’s not as confident as he thinks. Or as well-adjusted. Or as sexy.  He thinks tonight is going to be fun. He’s also wrong. THIS ROLE IS PRE-CAST.

AUDITIONS
will be held on MONDAY, December 4th from 6:00pm - 10:00pm. Venue & Directions given when  appointment made (audition/rehearsal location is in Central Phoenix)
