VDL Awards Entry: 2020

Author: Andrew Upton

Director: Malcolm Sussman

Agent: RGM Artists Pty Ltd

Synopsis

A Flea in Her Ear is world-renowned as the funniest and most famous of all French farces. It’s perfectly formed in its comic timing, shamelessly saucy and completely bonkers. We’re in Paris, 1908. After years of married bliss, Madame Raymonde Chandebise suspects her husband is having an affair. In an effort to catch him in the act she causes a lot more trouble than she bargained for. Spiraling into a high-octane storm of sexual intrigue, mistaken identities and bed-revolving mayhem, a cavalcade of characters get in on the act. Some want sex and revenge, several want to preserve their honor. All want to avoid being shot. Nobody gets any sleep. You will laugh out loud.

Vincent In Brixton

The Basin Theatre Group Inc.
Auditions: 3 Mar 2020 @ 8:00pm,
4 Mar 2020 @ 8:00pm

Author: Nicholas Wright

Director: Graham Fly

Agent: Nick Hern Books

Synopsis

In 1873, a young Vincent Van Gogh rents a room in the house of an English widow in Brixton. Based on fact, the play concerns the journey of the 20 year old Vincent Van Gogh, a clerk in the family art dealership.

He is absurd at times, but passionate and endearing, wrestling with his Calvinist upbringing as he shakes the foundations of his relationships. It is amazing that Vincent, the father of “Impressionist Art”, did not sell a single artwork in his lifetime.

This is a love story presented in a fascinating, funny, and deeply moving play that is quiet, contemplative and with a tragic conclusion.

Audition Dates and Times:

1: From 3 Mar 2020 @ 8:00pm To 3 Mar 2020 @ 10:30pm

The Misanthrope

Dionysus Theatre
Auditions: 7 Mar 2020 @ 12:00am

VDL Awards Entry: 2020

Author: Moliere

Director: Melanie Thomas

Agent: N/A

Synopsis

The Misanthrope is a farcical satirical social commentary where the wit is in the words.

This production will be set in the early 1960s and the comedy will be highlighted to reflect this era. There will be some classic surf/mambo style dance sections between scenes, think ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ VS ‘Psycho Beach Party’ in style.

SYNOPSIS (Wikipedia)
Much to the horror of his friends and companions, Alceste rejects la politesse, the social conventions of the seventeenth-century French salon. His refusal to “make nice” makes him tremendously unpopular and he laments his isolation in a world he sees as superficial and base, saying early in Act I, “… Mankind has grown so base, / I mean to break with the whole human race”.

Despite his convictions, however, Alceste cannot help but love the flighty and vivacious Célimène, a consummate flirt whose wit and frivolity epitomize the courtly manners that Alceste despises. Though he constantly reprimands her, Célimène refuses to change, charging Alceste with being unfit for society.

Despite his sour reputation as “the misanthrope”, Alceste does have women pining for him, particularly the prudish Arsinoé and the honest Eliante. Though he acknowledges their superior virtues, his heart still lies with Célimène. His deep feelings for her primarily serve to counter his negative expressions about mankind, since the fact that he has such feelings includes him amongst those he so fiercely criticizes.

When Alceste insults a sonnet written by the powerful noble, Oronte, he is called to stand trial. Refusing to dole out false compliments, he is charged and humiliated, and resolves on self-imposed exile.

Arsinoé, in trying to win his affections, shows him a love letter Célimène wrote to another suitor. He discovers that Célimène has been leading him on. She has written identical love letters to numerous suitors (including to Oronte) and broken her vow to favor him above all others. He gives her an ultimatum: he will forgive her and marry her if she runs away with him to exile. Célimène refuses, believing herself too young and beautiful to leave society and all her suitors behind. Philinte, for his part, becomes betrothed to Eliante. Alceste then decides to exile himself from society, and the play ends with Philinte and Eliante running off to convince him to return.
