This is the famous mystery play which opened in London in 1952, and is still running there today -- a record
length of timel Several guests at Monkswell Manor Guest House are trapped by weather and cut off from the
outside world as a murderer with a long-held grudge begins to take revenge. Everyone is a suspect, and nobody
can be trusted. The trademark Agatha Christie switcheroo leaves the audience guessing right up to the last
Please prepare a 1-2 minute monologue that shows your range. 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

of time to those called back, but do not need to be memorized. We ask that you be available for the full three

Legendary film producer David O. Selznick is five weeks into shooting Gone With the Wind when he realizes the script is awful, and that the director doesn’t have a clue. He has five days to replace the script, and restart the shoot, or the production will shut down. Selznick calls Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard to Oz to direct, and he taps legendary playwright, screenwriter and script doctor Ben Hecht to rewrite the script. There’s only one problem: Hecht hasn’t read the book.
Over the course of five madcap days, the three men, assisted by Selznick’s assistant, Miss Poppenghul, frantically craft one of the most beloved screenplays of all time. As Selznick and Fleming act out the book for Hecht, the phone rings off the hook with calls from the likes of Vivien Leigh, Louis B. Mayer and Ed Sullivan. For more about the play, click HERE.
