The Oldest Profession
Stage direction by Gregory R. Brown – Music directon by Zack Varela
Performances: September 22 – October 1
5 women – ages 60+, open to all ethnicities
On the cusp of Ronald Reagan entering the White House, five aging practitioners of the oldest profession are faced with the age old question of how to survive as the world changes and time passes by. With wit, compassion, and humor, they struggle to find and learn new tricks as they fight to stay in the life. (Contains adult language…but no gd’s)
VERA – The youngest in the group: loyal, sensitive, no matter her years, still a girl.
Loves the sun, loves food. Still a devout Catholic. Strong work ethic.
EDNA – The next in line. A good time girl. A little bit brassy. Loves her work;
assigned to the more adventurous clientele.
LILLIAN – Age has been gentle. Turns the heads of much younger men.
Sure of herself, a woman of great style and great audacity. The rose of Mae’s stable.
URSULA – Determined. Believes in rules, merit promotion, and supply-side economics. Ursula does not suffer fools gladly (and the sound of Vera eating with loose dentures has been an irritation for over a decade). Fond of adages and wives’ sayings from her parents’ generation. She is usually in the right, and does not understandy why her good intentions are not more welcomed in the stable.
MAE – A self-made woman, a leader who finds the management of men ridiculously easy,
and has mastered the management of women as well. She looks after her girls.
All of the women are vibrant and sexy. They’ve been together for quite
some time and could teach much younger women a thing or two.
Cold readings from the script, HOWEVER, songs will need to be prepared from the list below.
We will probably need only one verse but each are full of double entendre. The intent is to “sell” the song and interact with the “audience.” As most of the cast will be breaking the 4th wall and approaching the audience during their interlude, we need to see that you can entice the audience members (especially male patrons) to follow you. Embarrass us, lose any inhibitions.
You’re portraying an aging prostitute that started in Storeyville in Louisiana.
CHOOSE FROM ONE OF THESE THREE SONGS:
I Need a Little Sugar in My Bowl – Bessie Smith
Back Door Man – Vanita Smythe
It’s Tight Like That – Clara Smith
We will be working on making tracks available for the songs, however, they will most likely
not include the tune, as they are mostly for backup to the song (just as they are in the recordings).
cast will be provactively dressed for their interludes only and must be comfortable with their body image.
