Auditions for Mad Gravity


by William Missouri Downs

Directed By Eric Schoen

Mad Gravity is a zany, fast-paced farce that takes place in Eudora & Archie’s living room, where they’ve built a theatre. Our audience is actually their audience, so there’s a wee bit of audience interaction, but it’s totally benevolent and fun. There’s also romance, dadaism, drinking, slap fights, Shakespeare, and a giant asteroid (or is it a meteor?) that’s headed to the earth, about to destroy all life.


5 actors – 3 female, 2 male

Dakota – a teenager in love

Eudora & Archie, a couple, of similar age  Eudora – Dakota’s mother, an upbeat, bubbly Epicurean Archie – Dakota’s father, an outgoing performance artist

Mary & Dr. Joe, a couple, of similar age  Mary – an unadventurous professional mother  Dr. Joe – a dentist who dreams of a life in the theatre
