PLAYHOUSE NEWS 022 - AUDITION FOR MOONLIGHT AND MAGNOLIA

Play synopsis

1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind, a film adaptation of Margaret Mitchell's novel. The screenplay, you see, just doesn't work. So what's an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off the film's stars, gossip columnists and his own father-in-law, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time.

Roles

David O. Selznick (the producer - male)

Ben Hecht (the scriptwriter - male)

Victor Fleming (the director - male)

Miss Poppenguhl (the secretary - female)

No particular ages are specified in the script for any of these roles, although the male parts are unlikely to be suitable for very young men (e.g in their 20s). 

In many respects the three male roles are of an ensemble nature. That is, they are fairly equally weighted. They are all exceptionally good acting parts, although quite challenging as this a fast paced play.

Although the female character is a much smaller part, it is nevertheless an interesting part to play and the character is very important to the action.

This is set in Hollywood and the accents will all be ’generic’ American. (NB. although the film on which this play is based is set in the deep South, that is not the accent required)
