FringeNYC Auditions – “When Last We Flew”
WHO: "When Last We Flew" – FringeNYC
ABOUT: Inspired by Tony Kushner’s ANGELS IN AMERICA, this play is a moving and often humorous look at life in smallstown America from a contemporary teenage perspective. After stealing his local library’s only (and unread) copy of ANGELS IN AMERICA, misfit teenager Paul locks himself in the bathroom and begins reading the landmark play. He soon finds that his life and the lives of those around him in his small Kansas suburb are about to take flight, and over the course of a seemingly ordinary day, extraordinary things start to happen…
Priscilla: African American, 40s. Driven, successful, sophisticated and ambitious woman whose life has been thrown into upheaval by a move from DC to small-town Kansas. Determined to see her daughter succeed. Her external sternness and ferocity hides a deep love for a daughter who is ultimately much like her.
Ellen: Caucasian, 30-45. Literally a force of nature, whether she appears disguised or in her true form, as a ceiling-crashing angel. Ancient, wise, nurturing and fierce, she is a massive presence and the guiding spirit of the play.
WHEN: Rehearsals: July 19th, 2010. Performances: August 13th-29th at Lucille Lortel Theatre
