Auditions for Fictional Murders
Fictional Murders

Fictional Murders

Dreamwell is holding auditions for the world premiere of Fictional Murders, Aug. 28 and 29th at 7 pm at the Iowa City Public Library. Fictional Murders is an original play by Mike Moran and directed by Matthew Falduto which explores the consequences faced by a teenage boy who uses the internet to satisfy his desperate desire to connect with someone, anyone. It’s a play about constructing one’s identity in a digital world. The show will be performed at the Unitarian Universalist Society, Oct. 11, 12, 18, 19.

While some of the characters are teenagers, we’re looking for actors who are older teens or early twenties who can play younger. Will consider casting teens under 18, if they have parents’ permission to participate as the play contains adult content.Auditions will be cold readings. No need to prepare anything. Scripts will be available on reserve at the ICPL. If you can’t make the audition times and would like to audition, contact the director at falduto@dreamwell.com.

“I’m really excited to explore this script with the actors as there’s so much to unpack,” said Falduto. “We have interesting roles for two older women, two younger women and one older man. And then the leads are really challenging roles for two young men.”
