About this show

Says playwright Roland David Valayre, "Audition tries to occupy that space between real life and theater, the domain of the unreal-and-yet-true. The two characters, Eli and Albert, are neither here, nor there--which I regard as a good thing. These two can only exist in the ambiguity that emerges when a play flirts with the audience's suspension of disbelief. The play house in which Eli and Albert evolve is an empty but haunted space where, little by little, their existence melts in a succession of unresolved auditions. Their journey is a bittersweet one, without a destination, from the trivial to the grandiloquent, and from the pathetic to the absurd. Audition is about the theater and it is about trying out--but then, so is life."
