What to Prepare

The Audition Packet includes everything you need to prepare for your audition. Please prepare both monologues for the role for which you are auditioning.  You must be at least 18 years old to audition.  Auditions will also consist of cold readings from the script. 

Memorizing your monologues is not required, but certainly recommended. The Woman and the Man initially appear as kind, elderly caretakers in their 60-70s, and speak with an Irish lilt.  Later they present as much younger, in their 40-50s, and have Boston accents.  The Girl and the Young Man do not speak with accents. Accents are challenging, and no one is expecting you to have a perfect accent at your first audition. However, you are strongly encouraged to give it your best shot! 

For questions or more information, please contact co-producer Laura W. Andruski at 240-242-9735 or email

What to Bring

Those who audition must submit a “Veronica’s Room” Audition Form and Conflict Calendar on the night of your audition.

Please come with your Audition Form and Conflict Calendar already filled out.

About the Play

It’s 1973.  Students Susan and Larry find themselves as guests enticed to the Brabissant mansion by it’s dissolute caretakers the lonely Mackeys. Struck by Susan’s strong resemblance to Veronica Brabissant, long-dead daughter of the family for whom they work, the older couple gradually induce her to impersonate Veronica briefly to solace the only living Brabissant, her addled sister who believes Veronica alive. Once dressed in Veronica’s clothes, Susan finds herself locked in the role and locked in Veronica’s room. Or is she Veronica, in 1935, pretending to be an imaginary Susan?”
