Jack the Ripper has used H.G. Wells’ Time Machine to disappear from 1893 into the future. Wells decides it’s his responsibility to bring him back to London and justice. Jump forward to San Francisco in 1980, where Wells meets Amy, a bored bank teller, who becomes an ally in his quest. This is an unusual mixture of sci-fi, gore, romance and, yes, comedy. The story was made into a 1979 movie featuring Malcolm McDowell and Mary Steenburgen.
Please prepare a 1-2 minute dramatic monologue. You may also be asked to do a cold-read from the script, so it is best to familiarize yourself with the show. Please bring a copy of your resume and headshot to the audition. Callbacks will consist of scenes from the show, performed in groups. We ask that you be available for the full time period so we have a chance to experiment with different pairings/groupings of actors.
If you would like to read the play before auditioning, the script is on reserve at the Performing Arts Desk, 5th floor, Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge Street, and at the Community Desk of the Toronto Public Library, Cedarbrae Branch, at 545 Markham Road in Scarborough.
