AUDITION NOTICE

Third by Wendy Wasserstein

August 26th @ 6pm in the Redbud Studio, Rm. 204

Please be prepared for cold readings

Callbacks to be held on September 2nd @ 6pm

Scripts available for perusal in the Production Office.

   In the final play that Wendy Wasserstein wrote we meet Woodson Bull III, but you can call him "Third." And Professor Laurie Jameson is disinclined to like his jockish, jingoistic attitude. He is, as she puts it, "a walking red state." Believing that Third's sophisticated essay on King Lear could not possibly have been written by such a specimen, Professor Jameson reports his plagiarism to the college's Committee of Academic Standards. But is Jameson's accusation justified? Or is she casting Third as the villain in her own struggle with her relationships, her age and the increasingly polarized political environment?

Setting: Small New England College

Time: Academic Year 2002-2003
