Auditions: Lobby Hero

Lobby Hero

By Kenneth Lonergan

Co-Directed By Carey Bray and Bryn Rowlands

January 7th/8th 7-10 PM at Dartmouth Players, 33 Crichton Ave. Dartmouth, NS.

Lobby Hero tells the story of Jeff, a luckless young security guard in Manhattan trying to get his life together after being thrown out of the Navy. But the lobby proves to be no sanctuary from the world, as Jeff is drawn into a local murder investigation involving his supervisor, a tightly-wound young man called upon to bear witness against his troubled brother, and an overzealous rookie policewoman who is in over her head with her unscrupulous hero-cop partner.
 
Equal parts drama and humour, Lobby Hero addresses topical issues that are more relevant today than ever. Playwright Kenneth Lonergan offers up a captivating work about motive and truth and all the dangerous morally-grey areas in between. 

Roles:

  • Jeff: An awkward jokester working the lobby’s graveyard shift, all the while worrying his life is passing him by, (mid-late 20s.) 500 lines, onstage for whole show
  • William: Jeff’s strict but mentoring supervisor. Serious, moral, and hard-working, (30-40.) 220 lines 
  • Dawn: A young, determined rookie-cop looking to make a name for herself in her male-dominated occupation, (early-mid 20s.) 300 lines
  • Bill: A confident, charming, veteran cop and Dawn’s partner, (30-40.) 140 lines

We encourage auditions from actors of all genders, ethnicities, abilities and identities.
