  • Auditionees are asked to prepare a 1-2 minute contemporary monologue. You will also be asked to read sections from the script. Audition packets and sides will be made available before the audition dates so that auditionees will have time to fill out audition forms and prepare sides for the roles for which they are interested in being considered.

Synopsis:

Undine has it all – success, love, and a fabulous wardrobe. When her life unravels in one hilarious reversal after another, she is forced to return to a life she had long left behind. In this satirical comedy, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage asks Undine – and all of us – whether you can really ever go home again.

Fabulation, or the Re-Education of Undine, is rated PG-13 and contains adult themes.

A high-powered executive at a PR firm who loses everything but gains a sense of perspective in the process; a self-made woman who endures with humor and honesty.

Father

Undine’s father resents the way Undine left her family behind.
