Audition Information

A Fable for Now

Synopsis - A Mandarin play by Wei Yu-Chia; winner of the Taiwan Literature Prize, 2014. In seven scenes, the world ends again and again, for any number of reasons: environmental collapse, war, government incompetence, unrestrained capitalism. Navigating this chaos are a panda, a polar bear and a duck, not to mention a genetically-modified chicken and a couple of humans. How can we coax meaning and happiness out of our brief time on this dying planet? When the dust settles, only one human being is left alive in the world -- but is he blessed or cursed to have survived?

This production will be performed in Mandarin! We welcome everyone who is comfortable and confident in speaking Mandarin as the performance language.

Leave if No Response

Synopsis - Two queer Jewish women come of age together, then lose touch. They live haunted by "what if?" We watch Mira and Ariel go through middle school together and confront their individual creeping suspicions that they are queer. After Ariel comes out, the two grow apart. In Act II, they are living different but parallel lives that intersect in uncanny ways. They meet again at shiva for Mira's mom and almost reconnect. Throughout, there are dream sequences that draw out the different "what if" questions the two are struggling with.

Aubrey's Pencil Box

Synopsis - "Aubrey's Pencil Box" (written by Lanks!) is a musical that follows the lives of 10 colored pencils, each with personalities that correlate to their colors in some way. Sky blue is the favorite colored pencil. But in this world, favor is both a gift and a curse. As the artist’s favorite, Sky’s days are rapidly coming to an end. Grappling with impending mortality, the other pencils gather together to help recount her fondest memories of pictures she’s drawn with the artist. The other pencils look at her in envy, pity, or a combination of the two as she spends what she believes to be her final days telling vivid stories of her favorite drawings, all the time she got to be a tool for the artist’s creative genius, as well as the fond moments she had with her complementary, analogue, and triadic counterparts. Among other things, "Aubrey's Pencil Box" is an exploration of memory through the art that the pencils have been used to create. All the characters have distinct personalities and perspectives on the brevity of life. The show asks the question: Is a life lived short and in love better than a life lived long but in neglect? Is the artist’s favor a gift or a curse?

This is a thesis written by Lanks, a graduate student in the Music Department!
