The production is nonunion and offers a small stipend for performers. Auditions for all supporting roles are May 22. Actors must describe their techniques in submissions, and prepare a contemporary monologue no longer than two minutes for the audition. Be prepared to learn an accent for this one!

Within weeks he had created dozens of stunning pieces. The union and nonunion play auditions in North Hollywood, Calif. on May 21, so L.A.-based actors still have time to prepare!
