I’m an old time radio geek, and want to re-create with my own twist of one of my favorite episodes of the 1940’s radio drama “Lights Out”. I will need 2 males and 2 females for this episode.
The episode is called “Man in the Middle”. It’s basically about a man named John, who is having an affair with his secretary Patricia. Patricia’s brother Tom knows what is going on and threatens John. John’s wife, Lucille gets into the mix as well.
What I love most about this show and this episode in particular is the fact that the main character has lots of acting. Not just the main dialogue, but his thoughts as well.
You can view the script here: http://www.oocities.org/emruf6/middle.html
I’m looking to do this ASAP so deadline for auditions is: July 15th
Please email auditions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can voice up to 3 takes per character, one file per character, and label file as:
And now the characters and audition lines:
John –Male, 30s, mid to low voice tone, needs to be good at differentiating thought dialogue and actual spoken dialogue. Does more thinking then actual talking. Sort of a no nonsense type of man.
(SPEAKS, SOOTHING) Don't cry, honey. It's all right. I - I guess I'd BETTER let you alone, Patricia,after all. I've - I've got no business loving you and - going on this way, I'm- well, I'm - just a fool, I guess, darling.
(THINKS) That's a good line. Only trouble is, it makes her bawl even more. Will you pipe down?Will you stop that? Shut up. Stop bawling, Patricia. If your brother comes inhere now—
Tom –Male, 20s, any tone, open to accents as well. He is the tough big brother of Patricia.
I'm just warning you, Mr. Phillips. I won't warn ya again.Just let me say this: I was welterweight champion of my brigade in the army. So-- take my advice and let Patricia alone.
Patricia –Female, 20’s, John’s secretary, typical dame, pretty emotional, needs to be able to do some adlibbing of arguing and also there will be scared screams.
I don't care what Tom says about me, Mrs. Phillips. If he thinks I'm just a fool, he's a-- I'm old enough to know my own mind!
(STARTS CRYING) Oh, Johnny.
Lucille –Female, 30s, John’s wife, tough, more emotionally stable than Patricia.
I called YOU a tramp, young woman.
Well, let's ask John about it. John, dear, do you really and truly love this girl?
Thanks and good luck!
