James Johnson has penned a dark 45-minute comedy capturing the angst-ridden process of putting oneself “out there” in order to get the role!
This is the Canadian premiere of this British hit.

Internationally renowned, award winning writer (and Victoria’s own!) Rachel Wyatt has created a wonderfully human look at the social make-up of our community, as barista Jared serves both coffee and support to his eclectic clientele in the world-premiere of this 45-minute heart-warming solo performance.

The Canadian premiere of James Johnson’s one-act (50-minute) dark comedy, The Audition, is every actor’s audition nightmare come to true!  AND it is also a universal and powerful statement on the responsibilities of those in positions of authority, and the consequences when the power inherent in that position is abused.  Lauren, the innocent young actor, is hoping this just might be the audition that will lead to her big break.  Her auditioner, Stella – the director from hell – holds the key to the door of opportunity.  Those “in the biz” may recognize the outrageous (and sometimes pushed to extreme) paces that Lauren is put through, while others will gain a dramatic insight into the challenges and absurdities that can take place during an audition.  How far will an actor go to get the role?  And how far can Stella push Lauren before Lauren decides to push back?
