Pistarckle Holds Auditions for Two One-Act Plays

Pistarckle Theater announces auditions for “After Magritte” and “The Real Inspector Hound.”
Auditions for two one-act comedies by the master playwright Tom Stoppard will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 25, at Pistarckle Theater in Tillet Gardens. These hilarious and absurd farces require actors who are comfortable with witty wordplay and slapstick humor. “After Magritte” presents the kooky trio of Harris (a middle-aged male), his mother (an eccentric, elderly lady) and his wife Thelma (a ballroom dance expert). The Real Inspector Hound: presents the quirky duo of Inspector Foot, the quintessential Scotland Yard constable, and his loyal but bumbling Bobby, as they try to unravel a surrealistic mystery about tubas, turtles, one- legged football players and ammunition, all the while trapped in the absurd world of Renee Magritte paintings.
In “The Real Inspector Hound,” feuding theatre critics Moon (the up and coming, young second stringer) and Birdboot (a seasoned but pompous philanderer) are swept into the whodunit they are viewing. In addition to the two critics, this hilarious spoof of Agatha Christie also requires a cast of eight additional performers: The Body; Mrs. Drudge, the hunch backed housekeeper; Simon, the mysterious handsome stranger; Felicity, the tennis playing ingénue; Cynthia, the handsome matron of the house; Magnus, the
wheel-chair bound, old war veteran; and, of course, Inspector Hound, Scotland Yard’s finest constable.
