Auditions for Fefu and Her Friends by Maria Irene Fornes

Tuesday, November 10th from 6:30-9pm in the Rooke Theatre’s blackbox

Play information:

Place: Farm house in New England



Fefu: the host of the gathering, full of breezy confidence, extremely opinionated

Cindy: close friend of Fefu, able to hold her own

Christina: the outsider of the group, appears disturbed and confused by Fefu’s actions

Julia: her character is in a wheelchair, it is unclear if the cause is psychosomatic or an actual brain injury.

Emma: most theatrical, directs the charity skit and provides comic relief, a whirlwind

Paula: more reserved than Fefu or Emma, had a romantic relationship with Cecilia

Sue: the quietest member of the group, the helpful friend

Cecilia: on the outskirts of the group, had a past romantic relationship with Paula

Prepare: one short contemporary monologue (less than 3 minutes) or a side from the script will be given
