Audition Information

Down the Road by Lee Blessing

Directed by Andrew Ray.

A husband and wife writing team are hired to interview and write an account of the crimes of a convicted serial killer.
This begins a long journey of introspection, examination, celebrity, communication, and the ethics of choice. Bill Reach
has admitted to murders of nineteen women, but there may have been more. Over many weeks of interviews, the
couple – Dan and Iris Henniman – grow more and more uncertain of the ethics of what they are doing. Are they simply
relating terrifying events, or are they helping the readers consume assault, murder, and mutilation as if they are
consuming any other product of our society?

Content warnings for this production are language, graphic descriptions of violent sexual assault.

Auditions will take place in the Stone Theatre at the Howard Center for the Performing Arts at Louisiana Tech located on
Adams Blvd, Ruston, LA 71270.

The dates and times for the auditions are Nov. 6 at 6:30pm. On Nov. 7 callbacks will be announced and will take place
Nov. 8 at 6:30pm.

Please prepare a one-minute contemporary dramatic monologue for the audition.
