Fishtown Players Auditions for The Lonesome West – Thurs, Jan 24th

What? The Fishtown Players will be holding auditions for their upcoming production of The Lonesome West, by Martin McDonagh.

When/Where? Auditions will be held at the Rocky Neck Cultural Center at 6 Wonson St. Gloucester, MA. from 7 – 9pm on Thursday, January 24rth.

Who? 3M 1W – There are four character roles in this production. An Irish accent would be desirable as the setting is an old farmhouse in Leenane, Galway.

“Valene and Coleman, two brothers living alone in their father’s house after his recent death, find it impossible to exist without the most massive and violent disputes over the most mundane and innocent of topics. Only Father Welsh, the local priest, is prepared to try to reconcile the two before their petty squabbling spiral into vicious and bloody carnage.” (Dramatists Play Service)

Billed as “A penned-up Cain and Abel … with a moving and complicated examination of redemption that might offer a wee distant glimmer of hope.”  (Guardian, Variety)

Girleen Kelleher (age 17+) brazen, yet sensitive.  Peddles Irish moonshine

Father Welsh – (30’s) local parish priest with a drinking problem

Coleman Connor – (40’s) Younger, explosive, guilt ridden brother of Valene

Valene Connor – (40’s) Older, dominant, miserly brother to Coleman

Auditions will be based on readings from the script. You may also prepare a short (1-2min) monologue if desired.

The production will run two weekends beginning on Thursday, April 4rth and closing on Sunday, April14th.

Performance Venue is Gorton’s theatre, home of Gloucester Stage Company.
