Four literary heroines of the nineteenth century set conventionalism ablaze when they turn down marriage proposals from their equally famous gentlemen callers. What results is a confluence of love, anger, grief, and bloodshed, as the ensemble struggles to reconcile romantic ideologies of the past with their modern ideas of courtship. Everything you’ve learned about love from the pages of Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, and Little Women is turned upside down in this grand theatrical battle royale.
Auditions: Tuesday January 11th & Wednesday January 12th, 4:30-7pm
For auditions please prepare a one-minute monologue. If you are having trouble finding your own monologue, please feel free to use one from this selection. These monologues may appear to have an assigned gender for the actor, but please perform whatever monologue you wish, regardless of gender.
