AUDITIONS WILL CONSIST OF COLD READINGS FROM THE SCRIPT
Fit to Kill is a masterful black-comedy, murder mystery in the tradition of Wait until Dark, Deathtrap, and Sleuth - a scheme of strategy, betrayal, and deception. Adrian, a charming but self-indulgent chess master, enjoys a life of luxury thanks to his marriage to Janice, an older but still sexy and vibrant woman who has made a fortune as CEO of an exercise empire. The arrival of Amy, a reporter with her own agenda, unleashes a whirlwind of deadly schemes that will keep audiences guessing until the final seconds. A wonderful psychological thriller, and a tantalizing game of cat and mouse.
The director is looking for a tight ensemble of actors capable of playing both the mounting tension and the humor of the play. Itís a psychological thriller with lots of twists and turns where characters play an ever evolving game of cat and mouse that takes the audience on a wild ride through the Connecticut countryside. Local composer, Valerie Forgione is creating a musical underscore for the piece, reminiscent of the great thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock.
Adrian - Charming, handsome, professional chess player who is kept by his older yet beautiful wife, Janice.
Janice - Older wife of Adrian, a wealthy Connecticut CEO of a fitness empire with a history of questionable business ethics.
Amy - A young reporter sent out to interview Adrian who inserts herself into their lives. Who is she really and why is she there?
