  §  Dramatis Personae Aaron (m), 45, Broadway producer; Mary (f), 27, aspiring actor, Judith’s roommate; Judith (f), 27, aspiring actor, Mary’s roommate; Brenda (f), 45, Broadway producer.

  §  Synopsis “Mary and Judith are roommates who compete both on the tennis court and in auditions. As they compete for a role in Aaron and Brenda's new Broadway show, they take off the gloves with unexpected results. As the competition progresses, an on-stage tennis score keeper records the points scored by each.

  §  Comment “Simple single set representing the living room of the shared apartment. Audition scenes are on the stage apron with producers seated in the audience.  •  The play was completed in February, 2003 and has had no productions. The play should prove a favorite with aspiring actors who only too well know the risks and rewards of pursuing a theatrical career and the challenges of competing against friends for a part.”

  §  Themes audition, Broadway, falsity, playing fair, roommate, score keeping, truth, values.
