Theatreworks – New Milford Audition Notice

Theatreworks – New Milford – is looking to fill TWO (MALE) ROLES in order to complete the cast for the upcoming play – THE EFFECT by Lucy Prebble.  The play will be directed by Viv Berger.  The production dates are weekends from March 3rd through March 26th 2022.

“The Effect” is a clinical romance.  Two young volunteers, Tristan and Connie, agree to take part in a clinical drug trial for a new anti-depressant.  The trial is run by Dr. Toby Sealey and Dr. Lorna James. Connie and Tristan have palpable chemistry—or is it a side effect of a new antidepressant?

Dr. Toby Sealy and Dr. Lorna James have a checkered history but they both need this drug trial to be successful for their own reasons.  The results of the trial bring a new future for all four of these participants…

TRISTAN:  Is a young man with a great deal of skepticism and a tendency towards flirtation.  He is a class-clown, over-confident and essentially trivial.  He ends the play as a very different person. Age Range: 20-40

DR. TOBY SEALY: Is an expert in psychopharmacology and leads the drug trial.  He has taken advantage of this position to womanize in the past.  In appointing Dr. Lorna James to run this trial – he has re-opened the past in an unexpected way. Age Range: 40-60
