Auditions: Spring One-Acts 2024

The Spring One-Acts 2024 will feature six original short plays written and directed by OSU students. The line-up includes:

Homecoming
by Sophie Brown
Directed by Zoe Morrison

Daniel returns to his family's home in an attempt to reconnect with his siblings.

Characters:

DANIEL: (early 20s) a young gay man who was kicked out by his parents 

JOAN: (early 20s) Daniel's older sister, caretaker who has the same beliefs as her parents

JAMIE: (teen) Daniel's younger brother, happy and charismatic kid

Memento
by Jennah Campbell
Directed by Lillie Evans

Two former lovers die and process their "unfinished business."

Characters:
RAVEN:  An artist in their mid-20's. Taking a break from college right now. Previously dated August. Prefers sweeter drinks.
AUGUST: A university "lab student," also mid-20's. Very driven in their work. Previously dated Raven – dumped. Prefers stronger drinks. Affectionately called "Augie" by Raven.

Z: Almost definitely "Azrael" from the Bible, a character who was often seen as the "angel of Death." Could also be referring to the Azrael of Islamic heritage, which separates the soul from the body. Regardless, the "vibe" is there. Most likely appears to be around the age of the other two characters given Raven's immediate familiarity and looser manner of speaking with the character. Acts as the bartender and instigates the scene. Also reveals other information as the show progresses.

Following the death of Rhonda’s lover, caused by an unknown entity, she is forced to recount the chilling night full of questions, while being interrogated by a police officer.
