Casting for The Underpants Godot

Theatre Rhinoceros and Director Alan Quismorio seeks five male actors, age 25-45 for The Rhino’s upcoming production of The Underpants Godot by Duncan Pflaster.

The play presents a final dress rehearsal of a bold, postmodern, stripped down interpretation of the Samuel Beckett classic, when a representative of the Beckett estate shows up with serious questions about the production: Is it true to the author’s intent? Is it a fresh look at difficult play? Or, are those just men in their underwear?

More information on the play can be found at online.  Copy of script available in the link at the top of this page.

Actors should be comfortable in their bodies; two roles require full nudity.

Performance dates: March 15-16 & 22-23 at Spark Arts Gallery (4229 18th St.)

Rehearsals: Jan-March, specifics TBD.

Auditions: Wednesday, Dec. 19, 6-9pm at 250 Van Ness Ave.

What to prepare: One 2-minute comic monologue.

To request an audition slot, email with headshot and resume. Include Godot in subject line.
