24 Minutes by David Dudley Auditions

July 13, 2020 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

The Elite Theatre Company is thrilled to announce auditions for our upcoming production of 24 Minutes – a radio play by David Dudley.
Please note – this production breaks from ETC Nontraditional casting policy in that the roles are only open to BIPOC performers. If you have any questions please contact our Artistic Director at mike@theelite.org

What do you say to someone who’s dying? How do you comfort that person on the other end of the telephone? What if that person may be your daughter, whom you haven’t spoken to since you learned of her sexual orientation? What if you don’t get a second chance? An unnamed 911 Operator wrestles with these questions while trying to comfort Maricella, a mortally wounded young woman trapped inside the Pulse nightclub on the morning of June 12th, 2016. Though the call lasts for 24 minutes, the Operator is forced to confront her own mistakes in life, to wrestle with the differences that separate us all. But first, she must answer the next call.

The Voices

Operator, a woman, sick at heart, searching, 35-50
Caller, a woman, mortally wounded, holding on, 18
Caller 2, a young man
