Upcoming Auditions – 2018
by Hilari Bell
Directed by Jonathan Dunn
Auditions: August 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Intriguing! Gripping! Breathtakingly audacious. WOLF LULLABY by Hilary Bell is coming to ZPAC. This play unapologetically packs a punch and will grip audiences until it’s final moment.
In a bleak, remote town, a small child is murdered. Suspicion falls upon nine-year-old Lizzie. Angela, Lizzie’s young mother, is convinced her daughter is guilty. She must make the torturous choice between ignoring what her intuition tells her, and presenting Lizzie to the police, with painfully extracted information. Lizzie is constantly haunted by a ‘Wolf’, which seems to overwhelm her and, in her words, ‘swallow’ her.
For the four characters of this play, all their accepted beliefs about the world are challenged. WOLF LULLABY explores the disturbing question “can someone be born evil?” The situation for these characters tests the bonds between parent and child, society and individual.
LIZZIE GAEL (Age: needs to be capable of looking like a young girl).
ANGELA GAEL (Age: 26-35) Lizzie’s mother
WARREN GAEL (Age: 26-35) Lizzie’s father
SERGEANT RAY ARMSTRONG (Age: 45-55)
This is a unique opportunity for local artists to extend their skills and immerse themselves in a classic of Australian Gothic literature. With a small cast, the experience for both actor and audience will be intense. For more information, download an audition pack.
