Audition for "Want" by Barbara Lindsay

The Shattered Glass Project

About the project and the company


Middle-aged couple Ruby and Earl are happy in their new marriage, but the rest of life is bleak and looking bleaker. Earl has lost his job, Ruby hates hers as night shift janitor at a hospital, and they have moved into a cheap, drab apartment. When Ruby suggests they ought to kill her parents for the inheritance, Earl plays along, believing she is joking. The joke becomes more sinister when Janelle, their cheerful, attractive neighbor, shows up to welcome them to the building.

Auditions will be conducted via video audition submission. Callbacks will be conducted via Zoom.

Rehearsal and Performance Details and Information:

The production of Want is a 2 month project, including some rehearsals on Zoom and an in-person rehearsal process with in-person performances in Seattle at the Center Theatre, located in the Armory Building on the Seattle Center Campus.

Character breakdown / Project needs
Female, she/her, 40s. Ruby and Earl’s neighbor. Friendly, attractive, and sweet. However, she is not as fluffy as she might seem at first. She is a woman who has been wounded and has reconstituted herself as a caretaker, a rescuer. She has a spine when she needs it.
