audition notice - HARLOWE - Nearly Naked Theatre - August 7


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

HARLOWE 
by Jennifer Lane
directed by Damon Dering     

IF SHE CANNOT FEEL PAIN, CAN SHE REALLY HEAL?

Nearly Naked Theatre presents an Arizona Premiere and a limited engagement.  Harlowe is a bit of a theatrical miracle. We start out with a heavy, dark, poetic monologue from a woman (Harlowe) in a bathtub. This woman is in pain, real pain, pain she is aware of and can no longer feel. Then she is interrupted by her family and suddenly Harlowe and the audience are thrust into a real world that's as hilarious as it is complex. Moving seamlessly in and out of her protagonist's thoughts and fears, Jenny Lane has written a beautiful latticework of familial need and insecurity as Harlowe and her brood verge ever closer to healing.

NEEDED   
3 MEN & 2 Women

HARLOWE, a woman in her mid-twenties. THIS ROLE REQUIRES NUDITY & INTIMACY. (we’re looking for a fairly fearless actress, she spends most of act one in a bathtub , then has a FAIRLY INTIMATE love scene with the actor playing Scott.)

REESE, her sister, in her mid-to-late twenties

DAVIS, their brother, 13 (will consider actors as young as 12 and as old as 15. PARENTS must be comfortable with the content of the play, even though the youth actor has no stage time during the nudity or intimacy of Harlowe  & Scott)

EDWIN, their father, in his sixties

SCOTT, an ex-boyfriend of Harlowe's, Reese's age. THIS ROLE REQUIRES NUDITY & INTIMACY.
