Murder at the Manoel Theatre - Scene One: Audition Day

Complete darkness


Edward: I wonder if anyone will come...


Fade in, we see the director and the theatre manager on a desk, waiting for potential actors and actresses


Tony: I sure bloody hope so, I'm losing money by the minute by keeping the Manoel open, plus I'm missing the F.A. Cup final!


Edward: It's not like your missing anything special, football is all the same


Tony: Piss off!


Edward: Well it's true, I mean, all you do is kick a hard ball to one another until someone hits it in the goal, what's the point in that!?


Tony: Football is an art!


Edward: It's a shitfest, that's what it is...


Tony: Fuck off!


A door opens, they both look in excitement, however, it's Andrew


Andrew: Hey guys, Burger King was full so I had to go to McDonalds, and with the amount of people there are in Valletta at this time, it's ridiculous!


Tony: Did you get me a McFlurry with Oreo?


Andrew: They didn't have, so I got you one with M&M's


Tony: Why do fast food restaurants never have the things you want?


Edward: I know, it's annoying!


Andrew: Anyone turn up?


Both: No


Andrew: Well, I think your production is down the drain


Tony: That's what I was telling-


Edward: It's not being cancelled! I spent too long writing it


Andrew: Yeah, like this one took...


Tony: Well, the way it's going, you would probably have to find a new venue, the company is up my ass asking when it's going to end


A door opens, a person enters


Tony: Um, can I help you?


Martin: Hi, I came for the audition, is it here or at the studio?


Tony and Edward look at each other, both happy


Tony: Yes, yes! This is the right place, can I have your name please?


Martin: Martin, my name is Martin


Tony; Well Martin, if you would just have a seat here, can you read the monologue that was provided to you with the audition pack please, and when you feel your ready, you may start


Martin: Um, what is this play about exactly?


Edward: It's a mixture of crime and horror. A detective is hired to find out the killer of many victims who were brutally murdered


Martin: Oh, so kind of like Jack the Ripper?


Edward: Yes, sort of...


A few minutes pass by


Martin: Okay, I think I'm ready


Tony: Okay, begin


Fade out. Fade back in, we see the director and manager satisfied and looking at some notes they've taken


Tony: I like this guy


Edward: Yes, he has a strong masculine body and is pretty good in his acting skills


Tony: Yes, and he starred as the lead role in Les Miserables


Edward: Okay, so now we have Martin, Steven, Malcolm and Lucy... we still need two more women


Tony: Well what about her?


Edward: No, she exaggerated too much, I think she's still an amateur


Tony: Now what about Jessica, I liked her!


Edward: Her acting skills? Or her large breasts?


Tony thinks


Tony: Breasts


Edward: (He giggles) Tony, we can't judge a woman based on her breast size or her ass


Tony: Oh, she had a nice ass!


Edward: TONY!


Tony: What? I am single ain't I?


Edward: Yes, but your judging a woman based on her sexual features, you remember that interesting discussion we had about judging woman and how-


Tony: Oh don't fucking start with that fucking discussion, man. All I did was rate a woman that I saw at a club in Paceville, nothing more... nothing less. Besides... she was so hot!


Edward: Are you the horny hyperactive teenager that I once knew or are you the civilized person that society expects you to be


Tony: Man, fuck society! I just say what I feel okay?


Edward: But apart from her bodily features, what about her character and most importantly, what about her acting skills?


Tony: Well... I guess your right


Edward: Well, what do you think?


Tony: She looks experienced
