Enron
by Lucy Prebble, 10-14 July 2013


"The nineties... It feels - genuinely like the most exciting time to be doing business in the history of the world. There's a feeling that the people who are gonna change things aren't in parliaments or palaces, but in corporate boardrooms all over the United States of America."

One of the most infamous scandals in financial history becomes a theatrical epic. At once a case study and an allegory, the play charts the notorious rise and fall of Enron and its founding partners Ken Lay and Jeffrey Skilling, who became 'the most vilified figure from the financial scandal of the century'.

Mixing classical tragedy with savage comedy, Enron follows a group of flawed men and women in a narrative of greed and loss which reviews the tumultuous 1990s and casts a new light on the financial turmoil in which the world finds itself in 2009.

DOWNLOD THE FULL AUDITION NOTICE


In the audition you will be asked to:

  • Perform a short monologue from the play that you should prepare from the selected choice given 2 weeks prior to audition once you sign up. We advise learning it as well as you can, if not off by heart.
  • Perform a taught piece of movement this will be taught both on the day, and at the pre-audition workshop which we advise you to come to if you can.
  • Perform a taught song in a group this will be sang in groups, and we may ask you to sing in a round. We are looking for tune holding not an aria. This will be taught at the audition.

What are we looking for?
An ensemble. We need 15 actors (6F/9M) to create the crazy world of Enron. From Jeff Skilling to the three blind mice and the 50 characters in between, every member of the cast is incredibly important, and there is a lot to be done. A brief breakdown is included in the full audition notice.
