 Slut

by Patricia Cornelius.

Directed by Natasha Boyd – an edgy and provocative 50 minute one act group ensemble (Need FIVE creative and easy to get along with women).

THEATRE COMPANY: Powderkeg Players. Please note this is UNPAID though individual wins at festival will be yours, group wins will go back to company.

AUDITION & PERFORMANCE LOCATION Dempster Park Hall, 82 Phoenix St Sunshine, VICTORIA

CAST: 5 W – 1 role is Lolita plus 4 others work as a Greek chorus with interchanging/cross cutting words/sentences, a great acting challenge and similar to my 2009 What’s the Matter with Maryjane? OAP that did very well on the OAP festival circuit.

CAST AGE: approx. to look mid 20s-early 30s – need to look like you went to school together – nationality is irrelevant and open to all.

MINUTES: 50 minutes – one act play

SYNOPSIS: Slut is a play with a central character, Lolita, and a chorus of young women who watch her rise and final devastating fall. Only girls get called sluts. No, sometimes boys get called sluts but it’s like the biggest compliment. And sometimes girls try to own it. A girl might say, ‘Yeah, I’m a slut, and I love it.’ But in the end she’ll be worn down by it. It’s a no-win situation to be a slut no matter how much a girl thinks her life’s her own and she can do whatever she wants. A slut’s a slut. One young woman described it as being like a bag to piss in. Lolita is the queen of sluts. And she puts in an almighty fight to maintain her reign. Eventually she is hauled mercilessly from her throne.
