IRAQ IN 3/3 TIME WITH A CODA
is a series of four short plays:
AUDITION, GUESS YOU KNOW WHY I’M HERE,
SNIPER, and TRUST THE SKY.
Total performance time is approximately one hour.
One man as Roger, Sam, & Hank - playing mid-20s;
One man as Albert, Franklin, & the psychologist - playing 40s;
One woman as Amanda - playing mid-late teens.
Audition features two characters – Franklin the brother of a woman who served in Iraq and Roger a soldier who served with his sister. Franklin works as a director in the theater. Roger is recently discharged from the military and is looking to try his hand at acting. He’s responded to an audition announcement posted by Franklin. In fact, Franklin is seeking revenge for the supposed rape of his sister, but unleashes his own personal demons instead.
Approx. 15 minutes
Guess You Know Why I’m Here features two characters – Sam an Army medic who served in Iraq and Albert the uncle of a soldier (Ralph) who served with Sam and was killed in a firefight. Sam is haunted by Ralph’s death during the skirmish, and is driven by his guilt to a confession when he mistakes Albert for a federal marshal.
Approx. 15 minutes
Sniper requires two characters, but only one has lines - Hank. Hank is an Army sniper who is confronting his psychologist – a character seated with his back to the audience. Hank is a marksman gone rogue after fatally wounded his insurgent brother while on duty in Iraq.
Approx. 20 minutes
Trust the Sky is a one character piece – where-in a teenager considers the loss of her father during 9/11.
Approx. 5 minutes
Actors will be given stipends based on a cut with the box office.
Performances will be held May 22 - June 01.
