The Rondo Theatre Company is Auditioning...

 

4000 Miles

by Amy Herzog

 

Directed by Will Jesmond and Alana Wright
Performance dates 25 – 28 March 2020.

After suffering a major loss while on a cross-country bike trip, 21 year-old Leo seeks solace from his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera, in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately reach each other. 4000 MILES looks at how two outsiders find their way in today's world.

Audition dates:

Tuesday 15 October and Thursday 17th October at 19.30.

In the function room at The George pub in Bathampton. Parking free, (please buy a drink as they let us have this space gratis and we may well be rehearsing there!!)

Characters:

Vera Playing - Age 80/90

A 90 something-year-old woman, a little frail and hard of hearing but independent and strong-willed. A strong believer in Marxist communism who has been living alone since her husband died.

Leo - Playing Age 21

A 20 something guy on a spiritual journey as much as a physical one. Coping with the loss of his friend, he seeks solace in his travel and finds resolution with his grandmother, Vera.

Amanda - Playing Age 19 BAME (Chinese American in the original play)

A young party girl looking for some late night fun. She has a dislike for communism due to her Chinese heritage.

Bec -  Playing Age 21

Young but sensible, Bec has her head screwed on and wants to do well in her studies. Physically fit, cares for Leo but no longer wants to be his girlfriend.

 

Please note these characters are American so accents will be required for the role.

No further preparation is necessary.
